Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3—Quiquern, a young Inuit boy, desperately wants to hunt and fish with the older boys. They laugh at him, but his father gives him a sled and a puppy to practice with. With his small, lightweight sled and the spirited dog, he braves a fierce snowstorm, scares away a ferocious wolf, and brings home a fish big enough to feed the entire village. Brave Little Seal features Kotick, a white seal that, with the help and guidance of a seagull, Wise Old Seal, and a sea cow, leads the other seals to safety. While there is no information about Kipling, The Jungle Book, or how these stories connect to the better-known tales of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Mowgli, the short, declarative sentences, simple dialogue, exciting and suspenseful plots, and appropriate typeface and spacing make these adaptations accessible and interesting for beginning readers. Cheerful computer-generated illustrations provide essential clues that will help children to decode difficult words and concepts. The message that with determination, courage, and will, even the "little guy" can triumph is inspiring.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
