Description

An exuberant celebration of the Buffalo’s return to the wild.

Since Declan was born, his kokum has shared her love of Buffalo through stories and art. But Declan longs to see real Buffalo. Then one magical night, herds of the majestic creatures stampede down from the sky. That’s when things really get wild!

This picture book was wonderful and wild! It follows an Indigenous boy named Declan who has always had buffalo in his life but has never seen any, until one day they return in a magical night. I loved the colors and the fun story, and it's always wonderful to see Indigenous representation from an Indigenous author and illustrator. A great addition to any child's shelf!

This is a lovely book. Written by an indigenous author about an animal that is important to her culture, this is exactly the sort of Own Voices representation that I want to include in my libraries. Backmatter gives excellent information about the significance of buffalo and other historical context. Other reviewers have stated that they walked away with questions, but those were clearly answered in this backmatter. The illustrations are also charming, dreamlike and lovely like the dream they are meant to be.
