About the Book

Sometimes even shamans get cranky. That was baby Wolverine's misfortune—to be cursed by an out-of-sorts shaman frustrated by his own babydaughter's incessant crying. Not only has shaman Paaliaq forbidden the future marriage of Wolverine to Breath, Paaliaq's beautiful but teary baby girl, he has cursed Wolverine, banishing him when he becomes a young man. And even when acontrite Paaliaq later revokes the curse, the shaman's even crankier magicanimal will not. Now Wolverine finds himself stranded on a barren island, lockedin a life-or-death struggle to return to his home, his family and a very special young girl.

Michael Kusugak, consummate storyteller and bestselling author, conjures up an Inuit tale of adventure, perseverance and first-time love shot through with humanity and humour. This is a story perfect for its pre-teen and 'tween audience, where even the strong and the mighty have bad days, the bully gets his due and a dream can come true.
