Description
In the land under the Northern lights, a little girl dreams of carving snow geese out of soapstone, just like her father. He promises that he'll teach her when he returns from his hunt, so Missuk goes out to play in the snow, hoping to forget her worry that she lacks his skill as a carver. Then, when a terrifying storm blows in, Missuk has something far worse to worry about: Will her father return from his hunt? This tender story, beautifully portrayed in poetic text and exquisite watercolor illustrations, resonates with readers young and old.
