Join Cady and John Ray as they unravel a forgotten mystery... In Cady and the Birchbark Box, Cady Whirlwind Thunder solves the mystery behind a weathered journal found inside an old birchbark box. Why was the box buried behind a deserted garage? This is the question her friend and "crush," John Ray Chicaug, asks Cady after the two of them find it. And what meaning do the notes in the book have? Cady's grandma and her ever-present companion, a noisy blue jay, encourage her as she puts together the pieces and ultimately restores the reputation of a deceased elder. Cady does all this while navigating through another school year, earning a place on the school's soccer team and continuing to calm her temper and adjust to life with a new stepmother and baby brother. "I love Cady and the Birchbark Box. I read it with my daughter, who is very interested in Native American culture. The book is a fun adventure, sprinkled with history and culture. It is a great book for kids and adults alike. Great read!" -- August Brill, M.S., bilingual teacher, Chicago public schools "This well-crafted, beautiful novel immerses readers in the elegance of Native American culture as it delivers an emotional, intriguing mystery that readers from middle grade through adults will enjoy. Highly recommended!" -- Christine DeSmet, author of Fudge Shop Mystery Series "Ann Dallman's writing is a teacher's dream come true. Cady is a character students can relate to and learn from. While Cady is learning about her Native American culture and traditions, readers become immersed in a culture they may not have knowledge of." -- Gina Zanon, 5th-grade teacher, Menominee, MI "Another great mystery with our strong Anishnaabe Kwe Cady! As with the first book in this series, Cady and the Birchbark Box gives the reader insight into life on a Native American Reservation while also taking them on an exciting journey! The characters feel authentic and the use of Native traditions sprinkled throughout makes this book feel like home. I got sucked into the story immediately and love a good mystery! Native readers (children and adults alike) will feel seen and I wish I had this series to read when I was a child. I am thrilled that my children will grow up with Cady on their bookshelf. We will read of her adventures while drinking Ginger Ale and sitting outside with the Blue Jays. Until next time Cady, bama pi." --Larissa Wandahsega, Hannahville Indian Community member "I loved getting to know Cady! When I owned Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore in Munising, MI, we sold many copies of Ann Dallman's first book in this series, Cady and the Bear Necklace. It was definitely a favorite among our customers. The mystery component of this second book kept me turning the pages, and I loved the coming-of-age aspects as well. It is very hard to find books for this age group about Native American culture, so I was happy to see another book by such an excellent writer and wonderful storyteller! Young people will enjoy the diverse themes, including journal writing, reservation life, Native American artistry, and intergenerational relationships. I hope there is a book 3 in this series!" --Nancy Dwyer, Munising, MI "Cady and the Birchbark Box is a wonderful second addition to the series. It is refreshing to read a book you can identify with and that represents your people and community--especially when there were so few fiction works involving the Anishnaabe people from the Upper Peninsula. Ms. Dallman provided many historically and culturally accurate examples that will encourage youth to keep reading. As an adult, it was a strong reminder to follow the traditions we were taught---no matter where you end up in life. --Cassie Gill, tribal member of Hannahville Potawatomi and former high school student of Ms. Dallman "I was away at a wholesale show when the books arrived; I just unpacked them today. I was able to read Cady and the Bear Necklace while sitting in our booth waiting for customers. I loved it! I really liked how the Native American traditions and modern way of life were interspersed throughout the book and never felt like it was part of a "lecture," which I find often in YA. Well done!" --Laurie Rose, owner, Thunder Bay Press, West Branch, MI Learn more at
