Description

Marty Wilson-Trudeau is an Anishinaabe Kwe writer originally from M'Chigeeng, ON. Megan Kyak-Monteith, from Pond Inlet, Nunavut, is an Inuk illustrator and painter. Phoenix Wilson is an Anishinaabe actor and dancer and is very proud of who he is.
Phoenix isn’t like other boys. He loves to play with dolls and marvel at pretty fabrics. Most of all he loves to dance—whether it’s ballet, Pow Wow dancing, or just swirling and twirling around his house. Not everyone understands Phoenix, but his mom and brother are proud of him. With their help, Phoenix learns about Two Spirit/Niizh Manidoowag people in Anishinaabe culture and just how special he is. Colour illustrations.

Based on the childhood experiences of her son, Phoenix, Marty Wilson-Trudeau demonstrates the difference that a loving and supportive family can make.
