Here are 18 short, simply and well told how-it-came-to-be stories: how dogs and humans became friends, how pike got a long nose, how turtle got a shell, why snakes shed their skins, how an impatient pigeon became a mourning dove, how a big greedy frog becomes the first toad. Many of the stories are of Nanaboozhoo, and Walk in Peace, with Crampton’s lovely and understated pen-and-ink illustrations, is an excellent read-aloud for the younger listeners.
