Picture Books | Kidlit by First Nations Authors

Mad Magpie is the third book in this series of morality tales from Gregg Dreise. Inspired by wise sayings and the knowledge of the Elders, Mad Magpie tells the story of Guluu, an angry magpie who is being teased by a gang of butcher birds. The more he is teased, the angrier he becomes. When Guluu seeks advice, his Elders tell him to stay calm. Guluu tries this, but the cheeky birds just laugh at him. One day, when Guluu is at the river looking for worms, the butcher birds arrive and steal his food. He remembers the words of his Elders and he tries again--and this time Guluu has a different outcome.
