STARRED REVIEW
"Hiawatha and the Peacemaker adds a much-needed, authentic Native American voice to children’s literature. Its message of peace and Shannon’s incredible art make for a winning combination."

— Booklist

STARRED REVIEW
"Robertson offers a beautifully retold version of this tale...[t]he bright colors of Shannon’s full-page spreads add depth and volume, giving readers greater understanding."

— School Library Journal

"Shannon’s penetrating oil paintings expressively capture the initial tension and uncertainty with which these messengers of peace are met, and the tranquility that replaces it...a CD that includes a song written and performed by Robertson underscore the author’s evident emotional connection to this story and passion for passing it on."

— Publishers Weekly

"Expressive, handsome, and well-documented."

— Kirkus Reviews

This book captures the cat look. I would know, I have lots of experience with so many people coming to look at me at the store. "The cat walked through with its whiskers, ears, and paws," all very important for cat life.  - Pippi, bookstore cat
