BFYP FALL PREVIEW

Stolen Words

The originals

Orca Book Publishers has tagged Speaking Our Truth: A Journey of Reconciliation as one of its big titles for the season. Written by Monique Gray Smith, the book teaches young readers about t he residential school system, and introduces survivors and people who are putting the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commision into practice. • Simon Fraser University archaeology professor Eldon Yellowhorn and former Tundra Books publisher Kathy Lowinger give a pre-colonial view of Indigenous history going all the way back to the ice age in Turtle Island: The Story of North America’s First People (Annick Press). • Sisters Angnakuluk Friesen and Ippiksaut Friesen team up to write and illustrate, respectively, the bilingual Inuktitut–English picture book Kisimi Taimaippaktut Angirrarijarani/Only in My Hometown (Groundwood Books), translated by Jean Kusugak. The three women from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, explain the traditions and ways of life growing up in a small Inuit community. • Also from Groundwood, nipehon/I Wait tells the story of three generations of a family and the love and patience they have for each other. Caitlin Dale Nicholson writes and illustrates, with Leona Morin-Neilson translating the text, which appears in both Cree and English. • TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award winner Melanie Florence returns with a new picture book, illustrated by Montreal artist Gabrielle Grimard. Stolen Words (Second Story Press) is about the relationship between a young girl and her grandfather, and their efforts to reclaim the Cree language he lost at residential school. • A reclamation of another sort lies at the heart of #Not Your Princess (Annick), the latest offering from editors Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale, which follows the same style as the duo’s earlier title, Dreaming in Indian.

Shadow Warrior

Don’t mess with her

Tanya Lloyd Kyi’s latest title might be her most fun yet. Illustrated by Oakville, Ontario, artist Celia Krampien, Shadow Warrior (Annick) is based on the true story of a brave ninja in feudal Japan and her troupe of fearless female spies. • Debut author Kristen Ciccarelli introduces readers to The Last Namsara (HarperTeen), the first in a new YA fantasy series about a female dragon hunter. • Maia and the rest of the Effigies deal with the crushing responsibility of keeping humankind safe from the dastardly Phantoms in Siege of Shadows (Simon Pulse), the second instalment in Sarah Raughley’s intelligent and fast-paced Effigies series.
