About the Author

Darryl Baker is an Inuit teacher in Arviat, Nunavut. He was born in Churchill, Manitoba, and raised in Arviat. In 2006, Darryl graduated from the Nunavut Teacher Education Program and he has been teaching at the Levi Angmak Elementary School since. Besides his career as a teacher, he enjoys dog mushing and has been an active participant in Hudson Bay Quests and other dog team races between Rankin and Arviat.Qin Leng was born in Shanghai and lived in France and Montreal. She now lives and works as a designer and illustrator in Toronto. Her father, an artist himself, was a great influence on her. She grew up surrounded by paintings, and it became second nature for her to express herself through art. She graduated from the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema and has received many awards for her animated short films and artwork. Qin has always loved to illustrate the innocence of children and has developed a passion for children's books. She has illustrated numerous picture books for publishers in Canada, the United States, and South Korea.

Reviews

"This book is very well-written and explains clearly to children that there is more involved with being a dog owner than just playing with them . . ."
"Qin Leng uses the almost weightless touch of fountain brush and ink with high-contrast colours against the snowy background to keep the story graceful and self-assured . . ."
"The fundamentals of dog sledding emerge in this story of two youngsters, one a boy and the other a dog, eager to join the team and run."
". . . [L]ove the present-day setting, and the significant role extended family members play in Jake's life."
"[T]his story offers a refreshing and credible depiction of a moment in a contemporary Inuit boy's life...Leng's playful illustrations capture the snowy quiet of Jake's walk through town and his puppy's adoring devotion."
