Overview

A vibrant, modern retelling of a traditional Inuit legend

Sukaq loves to drift off to sleep listening to his mother tell him stories, especially the tale of how a raven created the world. But this time, as his mother begins to tell the story, 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.
