K-Gr 2 In this comfortable intergenerational story, Indian-lore loving Timothy cajoles his grandfather into telling him a bedtime story. As Grandpa begins a couple of story lines involving western Native Americans, Timothy corrects Grandpa's inconsistencies. In the story, Timothy becomes Timothy Tall Feather on a Dakota Indian buffalo hunt. He proves his mettle when he kills a buffalo with one perfectly aimed arrow. Stock's charcoal/pencil illustrations are washed over with light blue and peach tints. They consume two-thirds of a page, faced by a full page of text. During Timothy's imagined buffalo hunt, Stock effectively expands the pictures, making them double-page spreads with a dream-like quality to signify the transition from one plane to another; the type face also changes for the story that Grandpa tells. A complementary feature of this story is its handling of old age. Comments are made about Grandpa's frequent tiredness, reminiscences, and mature wisdom. Timothy Tall Feather is a strong picture book addition to intergenerational literature. Mary Beth Burgoyne, Mesa Public Library, Ariz.
