The Huron Carol
Written and illustrated by Ian Wallace
Groundwood/Douglas and McIntyre, 2006 
"In the well-composed watercolour paintings, the many night scenes gradually give way to a radiant day. A beautiful, moving interpretation."
"There have been other versions of the 1641 Christmas carol attributed to Father Jean de Brebeuf, but few have been more beautifully depicted."
 – Winnipeg Free Press
"... a worthy addition to Canadian Christmas book collections."
 – CM Materials
"Illustrations in this version evoke the richness of the native landscape."
 – Today's Parent
"The elegant watercolour landscapes ... blend the Huron culture and the Christmas carol perfectly."
– Multicultural Review
