This traditional story, retold by Kugaaruk Elder Levi Illuitok, tells the tale of an Inuk boy who is adopted by little folk—a magical race of small Arctic people called inugarulliit. The boy’s adopted parents finally allow him to go hunting, and he tracks and catches a lemming. But with the help of the little folk’s extraordinary abilities, the boy may have caught more than he thought. . . .
This is a magical introduction to a traditional Inuit story for young readers.
