5 out of 5 stars
In this traditional Inuit story, an old woman begins to create some animals when the world is first being formed. She makes a walrus with antlers, and a caribou with tusks, but these cause too many problems. The walrus’ antlers overturn all the kayaks in the water. The caribou use their tusks as weapons against the hunters. How can the woman correct her creations?

I loved this funny story! The silly illustrations really make it hilarious and fun. The poor woman is so frustrated with her unruly creatures, but she is determined to do whatever it takes to make them behave.

I loved the cartoony artwork. The caribou and walrus have such silly expressions! The art really tells the story in an engaging way.
