In the episode Hiawatha and Megissogwon, the hero Hiawatha, sun of the West Wind, is grown to manhood-a powerful figure, righting wrongs and vanquishing demons. Inspired by his grandmother, Nokomis, he travels into a desolate land to challenge an evil magician. What follows is dramatic and packed with action, as Hiawatha slays serpents, evades ghosts, and finally confronts the mighty Megissogwon. Jeffrey Thompson's evocative scratchboard and computer colour illustrations combine with Longfellow's stirring poetry to create a stunning picturebook that will capture the readers' imaginations.
