Editorial Reviews

The writing and illustrations work very well together, making the book both enchanting and educational. Reading and learning from this book is one step that anyone…can make to support this work so that Indigenous languages and concepts will continue to be a vital part of the intellectual life in Canada.

Catchy and delightful, Awâsis and the World-Famous Bannock has a strong plot that propels readers along at a brisk and exciting pace...Awâsis and the World-Famous Bannock is a must-have for all Canadian children’s collections.

Highly Recommended.

— CM Association

In his debut book, Hunt tells a story that already feels like a childhood classic. Young children will enjoy the tale’s effective repetition of incident and language..., its cooperative animals, and the happy ending. Strong’s charmingly faux naif illustrations, dominated by soft colors of blue, purple, brown, and green, are lovely and expressive
