The Rough-Face Girl

By Rafe Martin
In an Algonquin village by the shores of Lake Ontario, many young women have tried to win the affections of the powerful Invisible Being who lives with his sister in a great wigwam near the forest. Then came the Rough-Face girl, scarred from working by the fire. Can she succeed where her beautiful, cruel sisters have failed? A strong, distinctive tale with art to match.


    REVIEW QUOTES

The text contains the cadences and rhythms of oral language, and the illustrations, dark and vivid, use earth tones and shadows to convey the drama of the text." --Horn Book"A splendid read-aloud." --School Library Journal"The drama of the haunting illustrations--and of Martin's respectful retelling--produce and affecting work." --Publishers Weekly"Striking . . . This will make an impact on youngsters in folklore units, Native American studies, and story hour sessions." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksAn IRA Teacher's Choice BookA Parents Magazine Best Book of the YearWinner of the Georgia Children's Picture Storybook AwardWinner of Nebraska's Golden Sower Award
