About the Author

Michael Hutchinson is a member of the Misipawistik Cree Nation, north of Winnipeg. He currently lives in Ottawa, Ontario where he works at the Assembly of First Nations, which advocates for First Nation families and communities across Canada.


"What is so unique about Hutchinson's book is the seamless way that he integrates real issues, among them the impact of the residential schools system and the resulting traumas it caused in the lives of so many Indigenous people, into the novel, while never losing the tension of the mystery that the Muskrats are trying to solve. It's exciting and deeply moving and a must-read for middle-grade readers."--The Globe and Mail
"This novel would be an appropriate accompaniment for school curricula about residential schools and the Sixties Scoop. It also presents an excellent example to students of how one goes about conducting historical research and the types of organizations, such as archives, that can be used to facilitate such research. While the first book in the series, The Case of Windy Lake, provides background about Chickadee, her cousins, their family, and community, it is not necessary to read the first novel before embarking on this one. The Case of the Missing Auntie is a well-told mystery that deals with important topics at a middle-grade level. It is highly recommended for school and public libraries. Highly Recommended."--CM: Canadian Review of Materials
