From beloved Indigenous icon Buffy Sainte-Marie comes a chapter book inspired by oral histories and traditions. On a prairie reserve, Tâpwê receives a mysterious gift from Kokhom (grandma)-and finds himself on an unforgettable adventure.

Tâpwê can't wait to spend a week with his cousins on the other side of the Cree reserve-especially since Kokhom, his grandma, has given him the most amazing gift: a Magic Hat with bluebirds and grass snakes that come to life! Tâpwê is so excited that he soon forgets Kokhom's advice: Watch out for tricksters!

Tâpwê's adventure is everything he imagined. He meets his cousins, takes part in a powwow, and sleeps in a tipi. But soon he's reminded of Kokhom's words. Is his new friend Wâpos leading him astray with mischief?

Tâpwê and the Magic Hat draws on a rich Indigenous tradition of storytelling and features:

  • A memorable cast of characters from both imagination and legend.
  • A glossary and pronunciation guide of Cree words used in the book.
  • A note to parents and teachers from Buffy Sainte-Marie about trickster stories.
  • An important message for young readers about being yourself, and learning to dance to the beat of your own heart.
  • Features black and white illustrations throughout.
