This book provides the reader with a real life picture of modern Aboriginal Culture. It includes the Pow Wow gathering, humour within the characters, the fight to keep a culture alive and things coming full circle in the end. Taylor also includes the Trickster and the sharing of the characters' personal lives as they continue on their life journey. The non-native character adds to the humour of the play and reveals the male characters' identity with respect to their culture. This is a short play but it has a lot to say.

This book written in English and Cree, is another story to add to the collection of the famous trickster tales. In this one Wisahkecahk flies to the moon, and before the tale is up, provides the legend of the creation of muskeg. As a sideline it explains the origins of the long legs of the crane. A simple, and beautifully illustrated short story.

This is an Aboriginal Christmas story with a twist! When Coyote invites his friends to a solstice party, a little girl dressed as a reindeeer unexpectly shows up. When they go to the shopping mall, Coyote sees people with large boxes of products so he joins in only to discover that he has to pay for these items. He retreats to his cabin, feeling tired, disgusted and hungry. There's a big feast and Coyote ponders whether good will and peace can be bought. This story is appropriate for all age groups because it deals with society's consumerism and waste. It's a short story with vibrant watercolors, expressive language, and animal main characters set against a wintery and snowy background.

This retelling of a traditional oral story is fast paced and humorous. Tacit messages abound including the value of working together, the need for peace rather than war, and the value of compromise.
