Editorial Review

"This is a memorable historical picture book that might lead a young reader to seek more information about this time in our collective history. Maxine Trottier gives thought to the imagined relationship between this gentle man and a young boy. In an author's note at the end, she gives us a glimpse of the time when Louis Riel lived and fought for the rights of his people. She also includes a recipe for gallette, which her French Canadian grandmother made for her as a child. It was always a special treat, as is this story."
Brandon Sun

"Trottier shows the deep humanity of Riel..."
Times-Colonist, Victoria, BC

"The author effectively uses the route through the reader's stomach to strengthen her message about the importance of bridging cultural differences and sharing."
Quill and Quire
