Amautalik Identification

Does that sound like a scary new science to you? It may well be! Inhabit Media, our favorite Inuit publisher, has a new picture book available that’s stuffed full of scary stuff! You can share with readers five to seven all the gruesome facts about The Dreaded Ogress of the Tundra–and then turn them loose to create helpful posters illustrating how to avoid being eaten by these Inuit folklore creatures!

And if you want to expand the story, Inhabit also has some very short animated films to help stimulate the imagination regarding Tundra ogres.  Check out their site at Taqquit Productions for these multiple award winning films.
