My Ittu: The Biggest, Best Grandpa

Maniq loves her ittu (short for iittuqpajaaq ‚ an Inuktitut word meaning “big grandpa”). He is brave enough to wrestle the grumpiest polar bear—if he ever needed to! He’s tall enough to see over the tallest mountaintops. He’s generous enough to walk through a blizzard to make sure others have delicious food to eat. And above all‚ he loves his grandkids‚ every single one of them—and there must be close to one hundred‚ by Maniq’s count at least!
