Product description

About the Author

Julie Flett is a Vancouver-based Metis artist and illustrator who incorporates photography, drawing, and painting into her practice. Born in Toronto, Julie has spent much of the last two decades in Western Canada. She began her studies in textile design at the Alberta College of Art. Following two years of studio at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, she completed a Fine Arts degree at Concordia University in 1997. Julie was the recipient of the Canadian Native Arts Foundation Visual Arts Acquisition Program in 1993, and was a finalist for two BC Book Prizes in the Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize category for her illustration work on the book The Moccasins, authored by Earl Einarson (2004) and Zoe and the Fawn, authored by Catherine Jameson (2007). Zoe and the Fawn was awarded a Medal in the category of Multicultural Picture Book in the 2007 Moonbeam Children's Books Awards. Julie has a long-held interest in folk tales, trickster stories and picture books.

From the Canadian Children's Book Centre

Written to celebrate and preserve the traditions of the Métis people, this simple yet elegantly illustrated picture book introduces young and old alike to the unique Michif language of the Métis people. Michif and English words combine with images from the Métis culture to create a stunning journey from A to Zed. Vowel and consonant pronunciation guide included.
