Q'uleeq'e' the crow tries to make up for her mistake in this story about finding friendship and new beginnings through challenging experiences.

The text includes names and words in Hul'q'umi'num', an Indigenous language spoken on and around Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The illustrations follow the Coast Salish art tradition of combining four basic shapes in both positive and negative spaces. The book also includes a glossary and pronunciation guide, an introduction to the Coast Salish traditional art style and a brief discussion of cultural appropriation.

Author/illustrator Andrea Fritz studied with Kwakwa̱ka̱ʼwakw artist and master carver Victor Newman. She shares Coast Salish stories, both traditional ones learned orally and new ones created from modern experience, with school children throughout British Columbia.
