Finally, after many wonderful picture books for young children, Inuit author Michael Kusugak has written a story for tweens. A baby boy, Wolverine, was cursed by a cranky shaman. He grows up, falls in love with a girl named Breath and then is prevented from being with her because of the curse. It happened long before the whalers and explorers came to the area we now call Hudson's Bay. The storytelling is both simple and compelling, revealing details of the traditional lives of the Inuit people. Grade 5 - 8.
