Description

Sous la Lune de Corbeau est un récit enchanteur qui raconte la création de grand-mère Lune et la façon dont elle a exercé son pouvoir sur un jeune couple qui ne se doutait de rien. L’histoire se déroule sur le territoire du peuple Kwakwaka’wakw, aussi connu de nos jours sous le nom de passage de l’Intérieur, en Colombie-Britannique. C’est là que les deux compères Corbeau et Aigle conspirent pour faire éclore un tendre amour.

About the authors

British Columbia's best-selling author and most sought-after public speaker has presented to hundreds of thousands of educators, parents and students the world over. This former teacher and principal of 28 years champions literacy. His message is spelled out in his best selling books The Gift of Reading and For the Love of Reading.
"The greatest gift we can give our children is the gift of reading and there is no magic in giving it. There is no toy or program that will do the job for us. It takes time, commitment and most of all, fire. We cannot hope to light a fire in the hearts of others without a fire burning in our own. Light and stoke yours, then spread the flame fast and furious. Let literacy be your legacy."
Bouchard outlines individual roles and responsibilities in ascertaining that all children are given the gift of reading. He inspires like none other and leaves his listeners with a concrete plan and the rejuvenation needed to face literacy issues head on.
Born and raised on the Canadian prairie, the author of over twenty five best selling books now lives in British Columbia with his wife Vicki and their combined family of seven.
David Bouchard's books have won several prestigious awards, among them: the Governor General's Award for The Song Within My Heart in 2004 and the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry award for Voices From the Wild in 1997. If You're not from the Prairie is listed on MacLean's list of the Top Twenty Children's books in the history of Canada.

Andy Everson a hérité du nom de Nagedzi, celui de son grand-père, le dernier chef K’ómoks, Andy Frank. Passionné de savoir traditionnel, une passion qui lui vient de sa grand-mère, monsieur Everson a toujours vécu profondément ancré dans sa culture. Il a réussi à faire entrer les formes traditionnelles de l’art du Kwakwaka’wakw sur le marché de l’art contemporain, démontrant ainsi que la culture de son peuple est vibrante, vivante et puissante.
