How Turtle Set the Animals Free is a surprising tortoise-and-hare legend with far-flung consequences. How Food Was Given describes the care and sacrifice of the four Chiefs of plant and animal life devoted to the new people who will soon come to Earth.


Barb Marchand's vital, expressive watercolours bring the creatures alive. Her adroit portrayal of self-important Coyote in the telling but hilarious How Names Were Given adds to his personality. The touching humanity of this story is the stuff of great legends.

And Marchand's illustrations echo the compassionate but musical voice that tells this story.—Elizabeth MacCallum, Children's Book Reviewer, The Globe and Mail
