Un ami m'a donné ce livre. Il y avait quelques idées intéressantes. C'est une belle lecture facile.

A folktale from the Nobscusset Indians about the sacrifice of Princess Scargo and how it helped feed her people after a long drought. She received many gifts from other tribes as she was the daughter of a leader, but her most prized possession was the carved pumpkin with miniature fish that she received for her 7th birthday. After digging a place for a new lake to provide for the Nobscusset, Princess Scargo released the fish into the lake. I am not fond of these types of illustrations with dark, dusky colors and bold lines. The text is a little too long and in depth for the age group it is aimed at. However, it retells a folktale that wouldn't necessarily be familiar to most people.
