Beautifully written by Christy Jordan-Fenton and her mother-in-law Margaret-Olemaun Pokiak-Fenton, we travel with 8 year old Margaret-Olemaun to the residential school in the high Canadian arctic where she spent two years of her life. Margaret-Olemaun had begged her father to be allowed to go to the church-run school so that she could learn to read just like her older sister did. Worn down by the pleading, and feeling pressure from the school to allow her to go, Margaret-Olemaun's father eventually said yes. But the school wasn't the dream that Margaret-Olemaun thought it would be. She did learn to read, but she was also shamed, malnourished, bullied and worked to the bone. She was made to dress like the "outsiders" who didn't have the sense to dress warmly in the winter and she was banned from speaking her own language. Margaret-Oleman did not see her family for two years. When she was finally allowed to be reunited, her mother refused to believe that this outsider was her girl. Heartbroken, Margaret-Olemaun realized that fitting back in to her family wasn't going to be as easy as she thought it would be. This book is a great way to start a conversation with Intermediate students about Residential/Boarding Schools and Assimilation through Education. The squel to Fatty Legs, Stranger at Home, continues Margaret-Olemaun's story.

Youth review: You may have heard about the schools where Native American and Native Canadian children were taken to. In Canada they called them Residential Schools, and in the U.S. they called them Indian Boarding Schools. They started in the 1860s and ran for over 100 years. The purpose of these schools was to make the children more like White Europeans. Many indigenous children were forced to leave their families and attend these schools, but in this story Margaret-Oleman asked to go to the school because she wanted to learn how to read. Unfortunately, she wasn't treated well when she was there and wasn't allowed to see her family for two years. When she did get to go home her mother didn't recognize her. It's a good story to read to try to understand what some of these children went through. ( )

Desperate to learn to read, eight-year-old Olemaun badgers her father to let her go to the school for Inuit children in Canada's far north. There, she encounters a particularly mean nun who renames her Margaret but cannot "educate" her into submission.

The story is relatable to any child that might have to put up with bullying and hard teachers. Olemaun a.k.a. Margaret shows strength in how she navigates her time at the residential school. The book also includes footnotes and photographs that show the story’s context in Canadian history. The short chapters and reading level make the book a good bridge between picture books and early novels. ( )

Margaret was such a strong girl. I was beyond proud when she decided to burn the red stockings. It was showing a different way of bullying. Instead of getting bullied by other students, she was getting bullied by adults and even worse... NUNS!

Overall, Fatty Legs presents a unique and enlightening glimpse into the residential school experience and, most importantly, one little girl’s triumph over her oppressors.

For my three little inspirations — Qugyuk, Aklak, and Paniktuaq — and their loving father, my husband, Garth. None of this would have been possible without your patience. For Penny Howe, my grade 7/8 teacher: thank you for sharing with a young girl that people as fantastic as you came from the same place as people like me. For Brad Hawranik, my first section commander: I still think of you as one of the finest role models I have ever known. And, for Margaret: you have given us a powerful gift. Thank you for being brave enough to share your story. — Christy
For my late husband, Lyle, who helped me to work through the many fears I carried with me from residential school. Your love gave me courage. And, for our children, their husbands and wives, and our many grandchildren. — Margaret
