What I loved: This is a simple folklore tale that captures the imagination. I loved the colorful and cartoonish illustrations on each page, and the simplicity of the story is great for many ages. There's a lot of fun in the walrus and caribou, as well as their silly interactions with the hunters. Guk is delightful, and her personality comes across throughout. The book ends with a question, inviting children to think of the animals they would create if they could - a fun exercise.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, Guk kicks the caribou in the story. I would rather not show this as it is a bad example for children (particularly toddlers who may still be learning that we don't kick people or animals).
Final verdict: Overall, this is a fun picture book about an Indigenous folktale sure to appeal to children with the expressive Guk, animal fun, and fantastic illustrations.
