By Cree author and performer Tomson Highway and illustrated by Delphine Renon. Narrated by Jimmy Blais, a member of the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, and of Plains Cree and French settler heritage.

Once upon a magical time, a young rabbit named Weeskits hurried home to Kisoos—a town known as the Earth’s belly button—to deliver some thrilling news. Salamoo Cook, the Grand Chief of all rabbits in the world, was on his way to announce a mysterious contest. The prize? A year’s supply of all-healing waaskeechoos juice, fresh from spruce cones that have just fallen. Would Weeskits be able to help his brother Keegach win the juice to rid his wife of the dreadful manchoos?

Grand Chief Salamoo Cook is Coming to Town! is a laugh-out-loud riot of a tale in English, interspersed with nine jazzy songs performed in Cree.

Includes a Cree glossary and free teaching guide developed with the Cree Literacy Network.

"This is one more triumph for Tomson Highway, and a gift to the rest of us." --Buffy Sainte-Marie, influential singer-songwriter.
