Brothers of the Wolf

by Caroll Simpson

tagged: wolves & coyotes, native canadian

This is the tale of two wolf cubs found and raised in a village on the Pacific coast as human children and a lazy Moon who gets up when he wants to, covering the land and sea in unpredictable periods of darkness.

The wolf cub brothers, named Tkope and Klale, are very different from each other. One feels most at home in the forest, while the other is more comfortable in the sea. When they undergo a supernatural transformation, one turns into a Sea Wolf and one turns into a Timber Wolf. Although they are separated, their howling voices unite at regular intervals, waking up Moon and saving the world from uncertain darkness. Taking inspiration from the legends and visual art of Northwest Coast First Nations, this beautifully illustrated story is ideally suited to children aged six to nine.
