Overview

A vibrant, modern retelling of a traditional Inuit legend

Sukaq loves to drift off to sleep listening to his mother tell him stories. His favourite story is the tale of how a raven created the world. But this time, as his mother begins to tell the story and his eyelids become heavy, he is suddenly whisked away on the wings of the raven to ride along as the entire world is formed! This traditional legend from Inuit storyteller Roy Goose is brought to life through co-author Kerry McCluskey's jubilant retelling.

Author Biography

Roy Goose learned many of the legends he knows from his great-grandmother, Naimee Mammayuk, who left Alaska and came to Canada around 1910 with the Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Steffansson. Roy passed his legends on to his children to teach them important life lessons and morals.Kerry McCluskey has been working as a journalist and writer in the Arctic, telling the stories of the North since 1993. In 1999, she began travelling across the Arctic collecting stories, information, photographs, and artwork about ravens from Inuit, First Nations, and non-Aboriginal Northerners alike. Tulugaq, her first book, is the result of this research.Eric Kim is an illustrator, comic artist and animator. His illustration work includes Owl Magazine, Sinking Ship Entertainment and Chapterhouse Comics, where he most recently illustrated Northguard. He lives with his wife in Toronto, Canada.
