Ellen Hooge’s inspiration for Jackson Little-Light’s story comes from her Grandmother. She was a woman who loved Jesus, her 28 grand kids, her First Nation friends and telling stories about her prairie childhood.
Ellen and her husband Jack have worked and lived alongside the First Nations community for over 30 years. They and their four daughters have had many great adventures with their Aboriginal friends that just beg to be told. So it’s time to pass on some stories to the next generation of kids. Many of Jackson’s experiences are based on true events!
Jackson Little-Light lives on a Cree First Nation. He doesn't want to get into trouble every time he turns around, but it seems to happen a lot! Things get out of control on the first day of school when he decides to jog to school in his brand new runners instead of taking the bus. He doesn't really mean to get the rodeo bulls so mad and . . . well, you will just have to read all about it!
