Content descriptions

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2007 September #2
    Part wilderness adventure, part grisly monster tale, this is also an exciting coming-of-age story of an Indian kid today, proud of his roots, but never sentimental about what is happening in his world. The shortest kid in eighth grade, Baron sees himself as a miniscule mouthy Mohawk misfit; but on a class camping trip in the Andirondacks, he confronts a homicidal monster, bonds with a huge bear, and defeats the evil land-grabbers who are scheming to sell the wilderness land to developers. Kids will find some gruesome details (including piles of eyeballs) and sense ridicule of the corny, phony endeavors by some whites to subvert Native Americans. The suspense builds as Baron draws on what his elders have taught him to defeat scary threats, human or animal, and Comport's occasional charcoal-and-pencil illustrations add to the fearful fun.
