Description

Loon Rock, Pkwimu Wkuntem is a bilingual picture book written by children's author Maxine Trottier and translated into Mi'kmaq by Helen Sylliboy. The story explains the significance of a loon pictograph and the youth who fasted for his vision long ago. When children and adults pass this image on the flat rock, the parents explain the story of the loon image. English and Mi'kmaq appear on each page so readers can appreciate another language. This simple story fills a gap in the literature by providing a book about the Mi'kmaq of the east coast. Malecite artist Dozay Christmas drew the illustrations for this charming story.
