Caroll Simpson has written and illustrated an absolutely beautiful book, told in a First Nations traditional story-telling style which incorporates an important life lesson about the pitfalls of greed. Simpson uses mythological beings found in the Pacific Northwest First Nations people’s culture as well as local flora and fauna to tell the story. Further, at the back of the back, Simpson includes an image and description of the supernatural creatures featured in the book each depicted in a First Nations art style. And, as a bonus, she also includes more information about sea life found in the Pacific Coastal waters. All in all, the educational value of this book is very high!
The illustrations in this book are amazing. I just love them. True to a traditional First Nations style, all the images are bright, bold, and colorful. Of course each contour, line, shape, and color has meaning and a rich and detailed history. I don’t fancy myself an art connoisseur; therefore, I was happy to see a list of resources included on the last page for those interested in learning more about First Nations art, history, and mythology. There is so much potential for further study, add-on activities, and discussion for homeschoolers or for elementary school classrooms. I highly recommend this gorgeous book for children ages 3 to 8 years old.
