" This story explains how the American Indians were given the game of lacrosse. " said.

" Well, since I wrote this book, I'd have to say I loved it. After all, it's by one of my favorite writers... " said.

" I sent the final revisions off to the editor yesterday. The last of the illustrations ought to be in hand today. The production team can now start laying out the book. It has been a fascinating process to watch and participate in. " said.

"Coulson has a way with words. English ones, and Ojibwe ones, too, as he tells this story about Travis, a sixth grade Ojibwe boy who is starting out playing lacrosse.

Set in the present day, Travis lives with his mom and grandmother. He's struggling with the game and bummed each day after practice. But his grandma has confidence in him.

So does his grandfather, who passed away some time back, but comes to Travis each night. His grandfather was a strong and swift lacrosse player that everyone called Hummingbird.

There's a terrific blend here. Coulson's storytelling delivers nuggets of info about the ways that Ojibwe people play lacrosse, and, the way that Cherokee's play it.

Oh yeah--Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: Dream Country figures in the story, too.

Perfectly paced, The Creator's Game is a terrific book.
