Michael Arvaarluk Kusugak
and Robert Munsch
We have been reading these two books by Robert Munsch and Michael Arvaarluk Kusaugak. Together the authors have written and illustrated two wonderful books about life in the Arctic.
The first book Hide and Sneak, written by Michael Arvaarluk Kusaugak and illustrated by Vladyana Krykorka, is a legend about inukshuks and how they came to be. We really enjoyed making our own inukshuks and building a giant one out of Styrofoam! The second book, a promise is a promise is written by Robert Munsch and illustrated by Vladyana Krykorka. It is a book about the Inuit legend of the Qallupilluq. The Qallupilluq is an imaginary Inuit creature that lives in the Hudson Bay. The traditional tale tells a story about how the Qallupilluq grabs children when they come too near cracks in the ice!
We have been looking at mythical creatures from all over the world including the Loch ness monster, Bigfoot, the Yeti, the Abominable Snowman, and even Ogopogo. We have written some amazing mythical stories about some of these creatures and even some new ones! Click below to read some of our stories!
