This cautionary folktale from the far north is a perennial favorite of Kinders through third graders. It has been voted #1 during Love of Reading Week.
I was surprised by the review of this book by Riva Pitch (listed below) given my students' reaction to this tale. I find this tale to be charming and the message of 'a promise is a promise' is one that my students and I repeat. Perhaps it is because we were studying the Inuit and Eskimo people while we read this story that we all enjoyed it so much. This tale of the children being able to outwit the Inuit version of 'boogy men' was fun for my students and I would recommend it. I found it to be a wonderful mulicultural connection for my students.
