Meet UPPAA author Lesley DuTemple

Stars in the Water


Lesley DuTemple, author of Stars in the Water will be making appearances during the upcoming holiday season!

Stars in the Water, an illustrated storybook for children of all ages—was published in April 2011. Stars in the Water is written by award-winning children’s author Lesley DuTemple, and richly illustrated by Jack Oyler. The three stories in this volume—Coyote’s Star, The Fire Deer, The Water Star—were inspired by traditional First Nation tales as well as Lesley’s love of nature and sense of wonder.
Jack Oyler’s marvelous wooden illustrations were specifically commissioned for Stars in the Water and are a perfect pairing for all three tales. These original works of art were then photographed by local photographer Joe Kirkish, a retired professor emeritus at Michigan Technological University. Joe’s photographs have beautifully preserved the textures, colors, and three-dimensional aspect of Jack’s original art
