This book is so amazing! I love that each one of the characters had a different abilities such as change into a bear, or raven. The grandmother (Kokum) that had the ability to sing and the song would calm people down. The fight between good and evil was well done!
This gave me more insight into Native American Cree culture. I can't wait to read the next book if he indeed write it. Also Aaron is an incredible artist and he sells his prints, and they are amazing as well. I plan on owning some of them.
