The Qalupalik

COVER_QALUPALIK_thumbAll Inuit know about the qalupaliit, strange creatures that live under the sea ice and carry away unsuspecting children on their backs.
But when one bright young orphan strays too close to the ice, he soon learns that while qalupaliit may be very scary, they are also easily tricked.
The Qalupalik is the first installment in The Unikkaakuluit Series, a new, beautifully illustrated children’s series based on the work of celebrated contemporary Inuit storytellers.
