Northern Canadian tale

by Ningeokuluk Teevee

Alego and her grandmother go to the shore to gather clams. Alego finds many interesting creatures in the tide pools.

A simple story told in English and Inuktitut. Teevee's coloured pencil drawings ably reveal life in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. An illustrated glossary is included, unfortunately without a pronunciation guide. However, children will enjoy this book.
