Indian Feather by author Owen Roberts is a lovely little book. Alex is fascinated by the beautiful Indian headdress displayed on his grandfather’s dresser. It had belonged to his great-great grandfather, who was an Indian chief of a tribe. Alex wanted one of the feathers, but his grandfather told him that he would have to earn it by performing three challenges just like his brave ancestors. He has to capture a bear, build a canoe and ride a horse bareback. If these challenges are successful, then Alex will also be given an Indian name. Alex is determined to accomplish his goals and sets off on his quest. He wants to follow in the footsteps of his forefathers, and devises a plan to accomplish this. How long will it take Alex to earn his feather? What type of cool Indian name will his grandfather give him if he succeeds?

I found Indian Feather very cleverly written with an original content. Owen Roberts was direct in his writing and got straight to the point with his creative imagination. He certainly knows how to use his words effectively, considering how brief this amusing book was. I liked the author’s sense of humour, which was seen in the great twist that the story had. That was definitely unexpected for me, so thumbs up to the author. The illustrations were nicely done and complemented the story, too. Children, especially boys, are going to enjoy Alex’s fun little Indian Feather adventure.


This is a great kids book, my kids just loved the adventure young Alex goes on to get his feather.
