Product Description

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-6-An author's foreword explains that this collection of 10 international stories grew from both her childhood question, "Where did I come from?" and from the desire of her Canadian audiences for "more stories from here." The result is a compendium of tales filled with the challenges faced by immigrants or those on a quest. The selections retain some of the flavors of the original culture as they pick up the climate and physical features of Canada. Some tales are familiar, such as the Russian "Little Daughter of the Snow." Others are less so, such as "The Couple's Journey," relayed to Andrews by an Omushkego elder; it is used to explain how the Cree language was transported to the mountain tribes. Andrews is a skillful narrator; each story has its own rhythm, delightful details, and a question or hook to help readers connect. There is one full-page illustration per entry that bleeds off the introductory page onto the facing page, as well as several cameos. Ng's figures are solid and angular, even monumental; his dramatic designs and perspectives are reminiscent of WPA murals. Source notes list the anthologies and storytellers consulted by the author. The child protagonists who face risks and solve problems in their new settings are sure to appeal to young people; the work as a whole will hold special interest for multicultural mixes.

I was hoping for something better. Some of the stories were really good, others are just passable. If I had read the book first, I might not have bought it. I may change my mind if I see my students react differently to the book.
