About this audiobook

Once upon a magical time, a young rabbit named Weeskits hurried home to Kisoos—a town known as the Earth's belly button—to deliver some thrilling news. Salamoo Cook, the Grand Chief of all rabbits in the world, was on his way to announce a mysterious contest. The prize? A year's supply of all-healing waaskee-choos juice fresh from spruce cones that have just fallen. Would Weeskits be able to help his brother Keegach win the juice to rid his wife of the dreadful manchoos? "Grand Chief Salamoo Is Coming to Town!" is a laugh-out-loud riot of a tale, interspersed with eight jazzy songs performed in Cree.
