Wait For Me!
Author: Karin Clark
Format: Paperback
This is a touching little book about the importance of noticing the world. Charlie's brother and sister call him "Turtle" because he's always stopping to look at something interesting instead of keeping up with them. Charlie is intensely interested in everything he sees and wants to share his interest with them, but they are impatient, in a hurry. While Granny knows Charlie's ways and draws him out, Grandpa draws a lesson from the conversation, confirming Charlie's perspective, and the sibs come to admire him.

Walk on the Wild Side
Format: Hardcover
This clever picture book tells readers right away what to expect. "There once was a bear, a moose and a beaver who loved adventure. But sometimes their competitive natures got in the way of having fun." One day, the three set off to climb a mountain together. But on the way there, they decide to make it more exciting by turning the climb into a race to the top. It's only after being sidelined by a series of mishaps -- a boulder tumbling down the path, the moose hanging off the side of the cliff, the bear hanging off the moose hanging off the side of the cliff -- that the three friends realize competitions don't always make for a good time. "At the end of the day, the bear, the moose and the beaver agreed that reaching the top of the mountain was great, but enjoying the journey together was even better."

This funny, contemporary fable is from Nicholas Oldland's popular Life in the Wild series. The wonderful fun here is the comedy that highlights the adventure, in both the dry humor of the text as well as the simple, earth-toned illustrations that provide a humorous visual play-by-play of the action. This would make a terrifically entertaining storytime title, easily promoting the importance of teamwork, kindness and friendship. It could also be used in the early grades as part of a classroom discussion of woodland animals and their habitats. Another lesson here is the pleasure of getting outdoors for recreation.

War of 1812: Highlighting Native Nations
Author: Zig Misiak
Format: Paperback
Review by: Major John R. Grodzinski, CD, PhD, Assistant Professor
Department of History, The Royal Military College of Canada

Zig Misiak’s intent was to create an easy-to-read general overview for the “casual consumer of history” (p. 13). Misiak photographed 29 historic locations between Detroit to the Niagara Frontier, and then added commentaries, maps and drawings for each site, to create a beautifully illustrated work, that is useful in a number of ways.

Teachers and students will find it an excellent source for use in the classroom, while general readers will enjoy exploring these locales from the comfort of their homes; however, everyone will recognize this book as a wonderful guide for visiting these historic sites - travels that are assisted by the “Route 1812 Map,” and the GPS coordinates that are provided for each historic location.

War of 1812: Highlighting Native Nations, is a well-presented and useful publication that offers an excellent introduction to the history of the First Nations in the War of 1812.

War of 1812: Western Hooves of Thunder
Author: Zig Misiak
Format: Paperback
In 1800, on the Grand River Six Nations Territory, a young Mohawk boy and his non Native friend were born on the same day. The two children were of different backgrounds and enjoyed the best of both their cultures.

When the War of 1812 erupted the children’s fathers, and many of their friends and neighbours, took up arms to defend their homes.

Unexpectedly, in 1814, over 700 mounted American soldiers descended from the west and plundered their way to the banks of the Grand River. During this attack our young hero, Ayewate, takes on the role of a warrior out to save his friend, Catherine, who went missing during the battle.

McArthur's raid against the Six Nations along the Grand River Territory was the deepest American military penetration and the last military action north of the Great Lakes during the War of 1812.

Western Hooves of Thunder is wonderfully illustrated. Suitable for all ages and is supported by additional photos and questions and answers for school use. The two characters are fictitious but the historic content and Native references are authentic and validated.

Includes an Audio Book CD.

War of the Blink
Content Territory: Haida
Format: Hardcover
“This Haida manga intriguingly blends graphic storytelling with a fine art sensibility… Yahgulanaas communicates via an arresting series of images evoking the traditional visual arts of the Haida people.” —Publisher’s Weekly

The brilliant follow-up to RED: A Haida Manga — another stunningly inventive retelling of an ancient Haida tale.

The latest offering from acclaimed graphic artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, War of the Blink is a stunning full-colour graphic novel about war and peace.

It is the story of a fisherman who suspects a party of raiders is descending upon his island home. When his warnings are not heeded, the man sets out to guard the village on his own, only to find himself caught up in a high-stakes game of kidnap and bluff.

All this leads to a final showdown, in which one of the sides must blink first—and the villagers find a surprising way to save face and their home, and avoid bloodshed.

Combining traditional Northwest coast and Japanese comic art in Yahgulanaas’ own, dizzingly original mish-mash, War of the Blink is a timeless fable about the bravery it takes to choose peace over war.

An earlier version of the artwork was displayed at the Vancouver Art Gallery a part of the groundbreaking exhibition “Raven Travelling.”
