The Stone Child: The Misewa Saga, Book Three (Paperback)

It's a race against time to save Eli, in this third book in the award-winning, Narnia-inspired Indigenous middle-grade fantasy series. Now in paperback!

After discovering a near-lifeless Eli at the base of the Great Tree, Morgan knows she doesn't have much time to save him. And it will mean asking for help — from friends old and new. Racing against the clock, and with Arik and Emily at her side, Morgan sets off to follow the trail away from the Great Tree to find Eli's soul before it's too late. As they journey deep into the northern woods, a place they've been warned never to enter, they face new challenges and life-threatening attacks from strange and horrifying creatures. But a surprise ally comes to their aid, and Morgan finds the strength to focus on what's most important: saving her brother's life.

"For a combination of adventure, time travel and Indigenous culture, few series will challenge the Misewa Saga . . . Robertson weaves a tale that is part myth, part fantasy and wholly intriguing." —Winnipeg Free Press

“Robertson has a lot of narrative balls in the air . . . but the story’s emotional arc shines true.” —Kirkus Reviews

"[T]he narratives of the two previous books of the Misewa Saga weave together in a new way, and the characters of Morgan, Emily and Eli are realized more fully. . . . Teen dialogue and behaviour are presented with unflinching authenticity . . . and Robertson is skillful in providing cultural context." —CM Reviews

"Girl power is front and center in the latest Misewa adventure . . . there's a lot of urgency, a lot of action, a lot of emotion as events include satisfying reunions and heartbreaking loss." —Common Sense Media

"As readers, we were able to learn a lot about Cree culture in a way that's not achievable through textbooks . . . these books would be a great addition to any classroom library." —The Suburban
