Nanabosho et les cannesberges is the French language edition for Nanabosho and the Cranberries, one of the titles in the Nanabosho series by Winnipeg children's author, Joseph McLellan and Matrine McLellan. The authors who are teachers believes in the power of the oral tradition and storytelling. They take traditional stories about the Ojibwe trickster and teacher, Nanabosho, and weave a contemporary story that will appeal to all children. The story begins as Nokomis (grandmother) visits a classroom to help the students understand their science lesson about reflections. She tells the story about Nanabosho as he tries to gather cranberries. No matter how hard he tries he is unable to reach the berries growing on a bush. As he sits by a lake, Nanabosho sees lots of cranberries on the lake. Each time he reaches out to pick them his hands come up empty. When night falls, the cranberries disappear. They reappear when the sun returns the next morning. Nanabosho just doesn't understand that what he sees in the water is merely the reflection of the cranberry bush. Lloyd Swampy illustrates this picture book using pastel watercolour illustrations. These images convey the subtle and humourous meanings of the story in a manner that will appeal to young readers. French translation is by Mona Buors.
