“Throughout Wolverine and Little Thunder, the joy and value of friendship is skillfully embedded within an energetic tale. Young readers will benefit from the book?s message while simultaneously gaining exposure to an exciting Indigenous creator.” —Canadian Review of Materials (Winnipeg, MB)
About the Author
Artist Alan Syliboy studied privately with Shirley Bear and attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, where, twenty-five years later, he was invited to sit on the Board of Governors. Alan looks to the indigenous Mi’kmaw petroglyph tradition for inspiration and develops his own artistic vocabulary out of those forms. He is also the author and illustrator of the celebrated book (and multimedia art show) The Thundermaker, which was shortlisted for First Nations Reads, and more recently the board book Mi’kmaw Animals. He lives in Truro, Nova Scotia.
