Yakari and Great Eagle (Yakari S.)

Derib is the Swiss artist behind the popular European strip Yakari that is making way here in North America.  Follow the adventures of the little Indian native boy and his friend the Great Eagle.

Yakari meets his friend Great Eagle in his dreams. His wish of seeing him ‘for real’ will come true the day that he manages to be like him. So Yakari tries to fly, but in vain. It is with Little Thunder that Yakari discovers his formidable talent: he can talk to the animals. The storyline is message-driven and teaches children about tolerance, friendship and respect for the environment. Beautiful full colour illustrations complement simple, easy-to-read texts to make reading appealing to children of all reading levels, and especially to reluctant readers.

Yakari is a little Indian, courageous and generous, whose happy life all children would like to share. Astride Little Thunder, his faithful mustang, Yakari gallops across the Great Prairie, where people and animals live in harmony and migrate according to the seasons. Endowed with the wonderful ability to talk with all the animals, Yakari comes to know their way of life and their environment. Through his encounters and discoveries, Yakari passes on to young readers of his fascinating adventures a sense of respect, tolerance, justice, and solidarity. With humour and kindness, Yakari also teaches how to take advantage of lessons about life revealed by Mother Nature…
