The Globe and Mail Recommends Akpa’s Journey, The Three Hunters, and Putuguq and Kublu and the Attack of the Amautalik!

The Globe and Mail recommends three Inhabit Media books for its kids’ gift guide.

Akpa’s Journey, written by Mia Pelletier and illustrated by Kagan McLeod:

“For the budding naturalist and scientist. . . . Bird lovers will be thrilled as they follow the incredible 1,000-kilometre journey that the Arctic murre makes yearly from the icy waters of Nunavut.”

The Three Hunters, written by Raymond Gianfrancesco and the Grade 4 class of Leo Ussak School, and illustrated by Thamires Paredes:

“For kids who are interested in Indigenous cultures. . . . Students from a Rankin Inlet school in Nunavut use the framework of The Three Little Pigs to tell a story about three brothers who must learn to work together to survive a terrible storm.”

Putuguq and Kublu and the Attack of the Amautalik!, written by Roselynn Akulukjuk and Danny Christopher, and illustrated by Astrid Arijanto:

“For the graphic novel fan. . . . The latest in a series that neatly mixes Inuit mythology and the lives of contemporary kids focuses on an amautalik, a child-stealing ogress, who’s outsmarted by an orphan.”
