Putuguq and Kublu

There’s lots of fun to be had on the tundra—especially when Putuguq and Kublu are up to their tricks!

Putuguq and Kublu love to pull pranks and one-up each other every chance they get. But when one of Putuguq’s schemes doesn’t go as planned, the feuding siblings find themselves on the land with their grandpa learning about their ancestors.
