This book had me from the start so I read it from beginning to end the same day I got it. It was full of adventure and had a few unexpected turns that led to a proud moment at the end.

The Inuit culture is fascinating, and this particular story is gripping! The illustrations are great too! I’m sure even older children will enjoy reading this Level 3 book.

Level 3

Kidlik tried to guide the boat toward the shore. . . . But despite his strongest paddling, they were carried farther and farther down the coast. . . . Now it took all of Kidlik’s skill to guide the boat between masses of floating ice.

Kidlik and his younger brother, Tocktu, are excited to make the long journey by themselves to the icy sealing grounds of the Arctic to hunt for provisions for their family. Come along on this exciting story as Kidlik, no longer a little boy, seeks to prove himself and battles the dangers that await.
