A lively #ownvoices romp into the power of intention--and the hilarity of trial and error.--Kirkus Reviews
When the earth was new, words had the power to breathe life into the world. But when creating animals from breath, sometimes one does not get everything right on the first try Based on a traditional Inuit story passed forward orally for generations in the South Baffin region of Nunavut, this book shares with young readers the origin of the caribou and the walrus--and tells of how very different these animals looked when they were first conceived.
