Ok well I was just reading that the author (whose real name was James/Jack Marks) was not Native American and that's kind of crappy, at least for this Native American project I am working on at the moment. I actually really liked this book. I loved the Lullaby and the pictures were good too. Here are some of my favorite lines:

Anna loved the pictures, but wasn't too thrilled with the story. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the story. :-)
