The Little Folk is a 49th Shelf Kids Spring Selection

49th Shelf Kids has highlighted a number of children’s books as their spring 2023 selections. Coordinated by the Association of Canadian Publishers’ Children’s Committee, these books are “carefully selected from among the best new titles from Canadian publishers.”

The Little Folk is included in the picture book category. It is written by Levi Illuitok and illustrated by Steve James.

“A lot of the charm of this story is in the illustrations, where you get to see a giant child interacting with the little people. And there’s a good lesson to be learned along the way. . . . Along with the brightly-coloured illustrations, it creates a really fun and interesting way to introduce a new generation of readers to a traditional tale.”
