9781772270211: Way Back Then

A sweet and simple bedtime story, written in both English and Inuktitut, introduces readers to several short myths from Inuit mythology
 
Kudlu’s children will not go to sleep until he tells them a story of long ago. Before they will shut their eyes, they want to hear about a time long before Kudlu was born, a time when the world was magic. Before they can sleep, they want to hear about giants, animals disguised as humans, little people the size of lemmings, and all of the other wonderful things that existed way back then.

About the Author:

Neil Christopher is an educator, a filmmaker, and an editor for Inhabit Media Inc. He is the author of several books on Inuit myths and legends for children, youth, and adults, including Arctic Giants and Ava and the Little Folk. He lives in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. Germaine Arnaktauyok is an Inuit artist and illustrator, best known for her prints and etchings depicting Inuit myths and traditional ways of life. In 2000, she designed the special edition two-dollar coin commemorating the inception of the territory of Nunavut. She lives in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—Way Back Then draws inspiration from Inuit oral tradition and is told with both English and Inuktitut words and syllabic characters. When Kudlu's children cannot fall asleep, he tells them short stories his mother used to tell him about how life came to be in the North. The wind is whistling outside the iglu, but inside, the family is cozy and safe as the dad tells his children tales about how a hole that was accidentally left open allowed for caribou to escape the underground, the time a quarreling fox and raven fought over the light, and the meaning behind their Inuit traditions and values. Each story is one page in length and appears beside a full-page illustration by Arnaktauyok, an Inuit artist. The characters are dressed in traditional clothing, and their belongings and surroundings resemble pointillism art. The 10 italicized words that appear in the story are defined in the glossary in the front of the book. VERDICT These traditional stories and their evocative images will likely grab the attention of older children, especially those from Canada.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
