About the Author

Neil Christopher is an educator, author, and filmmaker. He first moved to the North many years ago to help start a high school program in Resolute Bay, Nunavut. It was those students who first introduced Neil to the mythical inhabitants from Inuit traditional stories. The time spent in Resolute Bay changed the course of Neil's life. Since that first experience in the Arctic, Nunavut has been the only place he has been able to call home. Neil has worked with many community members to record and preserve traditional Inuit stories. Together with his colleague, Louise Flaherty, and his brother, Danny Christopher, Neil started a small publishing company in Nunavut called Inhabit Media Inc., and has since been working to promote Northern stories and authors.Germaine Arnaktauyok is an Inuit artist and illustrator, best known for her prints and etchings depicting Inuit myths and traditional ways of life. In 1999, she designed the special edition two-dollar coin commemorating the founding of the territory of Nunavut. She is the co-author, with Gyu Oh, of My Name Is Arnaktauyok: The Life and Art of Germaine Arnaktauyok. She lives in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.

Reviews

"While possibly frightening for young readers, it will be welcomed by anyone fascinated by Arctic culture."
"Neil Christopher's details of these twenty creatures are given substance with Germaine Arnaktauyok's bold artwork in its earthy tones of browns, greys and taupes, and cold water blues."
"The sometimes-frightening creatures should easily hit the spot for kids who like scary stories . . ."
"Renowned Inuit artist Arnaktauyok illustrates each one with smooth tints and stylized postures reflecting traditional Inuit art, emphasizing a bizarre otherworldliness that suits the subject perfectly."
