“…Gidjie is absolutely special and wholly memorable.”

-The BookLife Review

Gidjie is an Anishinaabe girl who lives near the shore of Lake Superior. Her best friend is an opossum. Her grandmother is an expert baker, traveling animal medic, and part-time bird. Join Gidjie as she embarks on a life-changing journey to uncover the whereabouts of her missing wolf aunt; prodded on by dancing foxes, a tiny man on a floating island, and unexpected friendships.

“Author Tashia Marie Hart captures a slice of life like no other in this enchanting work of magical realism, fantasy and socio-cultural fiction…I could easily see this becoming a book that families explore together, and overall I would highly recommend Gidjie and the Wolves to anyone seeking a fascinating adventure.”
