    Ages 3-7. Waboose couches her big-and-little-sister story in Native American lore. Two Ojibway girls, big sister Allie and little sister Alex, venture out one cold night for an unclear purpose, following their grandmother's advice: "Wisdom comes on silent wings." Along the way, they encounter three guardian spirits: a rabbit, a deer, and a coyote. At last, they arrive at Coyote Hill, where they see the object of their journey: the Northern Lights, or SkySpirits, who dance in the frigid, starry sky. Deines' oil paintings contrast the warmth of the children's home with the frozen night and beautifully capture the feeling of the silence, the snow, and the cold. There's also a splendid depiction of the Northern Lights. By book's end, when the older sister renames the SkySpirits "SkySisters," it's plain how the simple journey has drawn the sisters together. --Connie FletcherCopyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
