A fantastic New York Times review came out today for WILD BERRIES by Julie Flett.
We are always so honored when the New York Times reviews our books!
Some stellar quotes include:
"Observant knowledge of woods and wildlife, a sense of hard-earned bounty and a respect for traditional ways make Flett’s story both specific to her background and broadly appealing."
And: "The illustrations have an extraordinary, austere beauty."
