“Anne Renaud’s delightful tale of a self-doubting child who comes to see her strengths is well matched by Geneviève Côté’s illustrations, which breathe movement and colour in a quiet, white world.” – Montreal Review of Books, Spring 2009

“Author Anne Renaud has lived in Northern Quebec and her experiences there inspired this gentle Arctic tale, her fourth work for children. She pays careful attention to small details, such as the sewing of a seal-fur mitten with a caribou-bone needle, and this gives her story a powerful sense of place…This memorable story of life in the far north will leave the reader with a smile as wide as that of Missuk herself.” – ForeWord Magazine, November/December 2008

“Missuk’s Snow Geese is a picture book that is sure to captivate adults and children alike with its elegant writing and gorgeous illustrations. Anne Renaud has crafted a wonderfully moving tale filled with interesting details about life in the North…It’s no cliche to say this picture book is the perfect book to warm your heart on a cold winter’s day.” – Canadian Children’s Book News, January 2009
