Description

Misaabe tells great stories -- about trolls, and x-ray glasses, and secret agents, and his super-exciting life. But is real life so bad? The Seven Teaching of the Anishinaabe -- love, wisdom, humility, courage, respect, honesty, and truth -- are revealed in these seven stories for children. Set in an urban landscape with Indigenous children as the central characters, these stories about home and family will look familiar to all young readers.
