Booklist Reviews Tanna’s Owl

Booklist reviewed Tanna’s Owl by Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley with illustrations by Yong Ling Kang.

“[T]his story gives a well-rounded picture of caring for a wild animal that doesn’t diminish the hard or unpleasant aspects of that experience—shown to great effect in Kang’s simple yet expressive illustrations. However, it also reinforces the Inuit belief that no one owns an animal. Based on Rachel Qitsualik-Tinsley’s own childhood experience, this #OwnVoices story accessibly incorporates aspects of the authors’ Inuit-Cree (Rachel) and Scottish-Mowhawk (Sean) ancestry and expertise in Arctic traditions.”
