Where to buy it


Adamie is a skilled hunter, but it took many years of practice and learning from his family members to become one. While on a hunting trip, Adamie dreams about the first time he went hunting as a boy with his father. He was excited to shoot something and became impatient with his father as he taught Adamie about helping others, observing his surroundings closely, and taking only what they needed. Now, as an adult, Adamie reflects on the important lessons his father taught him on that trip and many others, and how they helped him become the skilled and responsible hunter he is today. Adamie looks forward to one day passing this knowledge onto his son - his own little hunter.

DJ Herron is not a DJ Heron, a tall bird who spins sick jams. D.J. studied animation at Loyalist College, where she spent the bulk of her time designing characters, writing stories, and not being an avian mixmaster. When not storyboarding, sculpting, or designing monsters, she is likely to be found thumbing through fashion history and old medieval etiquette books.
