Stories of Survival and Revenge : From Inuit Folklore
by Rachel Qitsualik-Tinsley, Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley
Illustrated by Jeremy Mohler
Stories of Survival and Revenge presents three action-packed Inuit folktales: the stories of Nuliajuk, the mother of the sea mammals; Kaugjagjuk, the mistreated orphan who seeks revenge; and the Nanurluk, an enormous polar bear many times the size of a regular bear. Written at a reading level of approximately grade three, and an interest level suitable for the 12+ age group, this book is a perfect pick for reluctant and struggling readers. With comic book-inspired illustrations, this book presents these folktales as they were meant to be experienced, with all of the heart-pounding action and awe-inspiring creatures that Inuit mythology has to offer.
