"He makes every kid a part of the show!" - Kelly Stifora, CBC 2018
"Winnipeg storyteller Rob Malo is a fantastic voyageur, giving his young audience a fun-filled history lesson during 45 minutes of interactive play and joie de vivre. He draws on his Métis roots and experience as a tour guide at the Manitoba Museum to take the small fry on an imaginary canoe ride, incorporating an easy blend of French of English as they paddle off to Lake Winnipeg. Kids join Malo onstage to engage in a race with York boats, a buffalo hunt and a wedding party, during which they learn to play spoons, jig and tie a sash, among other special skills. It's a rollicking good time had by all." - Pat St. Germain, Winnipeg Free Press 2018
