Review of Texas Books

An unexpected and thought provoking multi-generational story written in a picture story book format that will appeal to and be more appropriate for older readers, not the traditional young children that many associate as the picture book audience, The story, written by award winning Choctaw writer and story teller Tim Tingle, gives insight into someone cultural background of a Choctaw family as this very touching and personal story unfolds and as the reader learns where Saltypie comes from.

Karen Clarkson’s illustrations beautifully portray the emotions of the different family members both past and present and are a perfect compliment to the text. Ms Clarkson is also a Choctaw tribal member.
