  • Information


Wolverine and Little Thunder are best of friends, even though Wolverine, a trickster, can sometimes get them into trouble.

Their favourite pastime is eel fishing, whether it's cutting through winter ice with a stone axe or catching eels in traditional stone weirs in the summer.

But that all changes one night, when they encounter the giant river eel-the eel that is too big to catch.

The eel that hunts people! At once a universal story of friendship and problem-solving, 'Wolverine and Little Thunder' is a contemporary retelling of a traditional Mi'kmaw story, reinforcing the importance of the relationship between the Mi'kmaq and the eel, a dependable year-round food source traditionally offered to Glooscap, the Creator, for a successful hunt.
