Nanabosho, Soaring Eagle, and the Great Sturgeon

by Joe McLellan
Illustrated by Rhian Brynjolson

Published by Pemmican Publications, 1993
48 pages
ISBN: 0-92187-23-7

Ages 4-8

When two Ojibway girls go fishing with their grandfather, they brag about the number of fish they'll catch as they ride in their grandfather's truck to the lake. After listening to the two girls, grandfather shares a Nanabosho story about a time the trickster hero and his friend Soaring Eagle were greedy when they stocked up on fish for the winter. Engaging watercolor illustrations capture the humor and the wisdom of this story within a story. They even take the story one step further by including border illustrations which depict the challenges faced by an older brother who was left home to do the laundry.
