Johnny's Pheasant (Cheryl Minnema and Julie Flett)Cheryl Minnema will be at Wild Rumpus on Saturday, November 9 at 11:00 a.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, Johnny's Pheasant, illustrated by Julie Flett.


Johnny and Grandma are in for a surprise when Grandma agrees to bring home a sleeping pheasant. Readers will delight at this lesson about patience and kindness and respect for nature, imparted by Grandma’s gentle humor, Johnny’s happy hooting, and all the quiet wisdom found in Cheryl Minnema’s stories of Native life and Julie Flett’s remarkably evocative and beautiful illustrations.


"Flett's (Cree-Métis) characteristically spare illustrations depict this tender relationship, careful details such as Grandma's game of solitaire further developing these loving Indigenous characters. This dead-bird story with a happy ending rewards children's optimism." —Kirkus Reviews
