“A satisfying ending ensures this nighttime adventure will soothe even the wildest child.” Kirkus Reviews

An exuberant celebration of the Buffalo’s return to the wild.

Since Declan was born, his kokum has shared her love of Buffalo through stories and art. But Declan longs to see real Buffalo. Then one magical night, herds of the majestic creatures stampede down from the sky. That’s when things really get wild!

Azby Whitecalf’s playful illustrations add to the joy and reverence in Deidre Havrelock’s picture book debut. A reprinting of the Buffalo Treaty and an author’s note describe the importance of Buffalo to Indigenous Peoples and efforts to revitalize the species.

  • Diverse representation: Cree author and illustrator; book weaves Cree elements
  • Universal themes: intergenerational relationships
  • Fun! Has the rambunctious appeal of Robert Munsch
  • Extra backmatter: includes an author's note, plus the Buffalo Treaty and other information about the relationship of the Cree Nation to the buffalo
