Under the Ice

Winter can be cruel in the Arctic, and food quickly grows scarce during the long winter months for those who cannot hunt. In these difficult times, the grandmother of an orphaned boy wishes aloud for the qallupiluit — strange, monstrous creatures that live under the sea ice — to take her grandson away forever. This adventurous tale is illustrated in a comic book style.

Description

Winter can be cruel in the Arctic, and food quickly grows scarce for those who cannot hunt. In these difficult times, the grandmother of an orphaned boy wishes aloud for the qallupaluit - strange, monstrous creatures that live under the sea ice - to take her grandson away forever.
The old woman soon regrets her hasty words when the little boy is snatched and carried away to the creatures' underwater lair. After enlisting the help of her fellow villagers, the old woman learns that her grandson may be happier with the qallupaluit than he ever was with her.
Written for contemporary audiences by acclaimed Inuit author Rachel Qitsualik-Tinsley and illustrated in a quick comic book style, this tale is sure to thrill middle grade readers.
