Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on a Yupik tale as told by Betty Huffmon As spring comes to the frozen shores of Alaska, everyone in the village is hungry-especially little Amik. Sent out to hunt by his grandmother, Amik can't resist tasting his catch. And the more he catches, the more he wants to eat. When he finally returns home, his hands are empty but his belly is full. In fact, he's grown so big that he can't even fit into the hut. Only his grandmother's wisdom and a little magic from her needle can help him.

Synopsis:

Sent out to hunt by his grandmother, hungry little Amik can't resist eating everything he catches. The more he catches, the more he eats, until he can no longer fit through the door of his grandmother's Yupik house in the Arctic. When his grandmother releases the magic in her ivory sewing needle, Amik finally learns the importance of sharing.

Synopsis:

Writer/Illustrator Teri Sloat met Yupik elder Betty Huffman in the remote Alaska bush, where both were teachers. This children's book prserves an old favorite tale from the culture's rich store of teaching tales. Teri Sloat has written a number of children's illustrated books, young adult novels, and adult history books about the Yukon gold rush.

Synopsis:

Sent out to hunt by his grand-mother, hungry Amik can't resist tasting his catch. The more he catches, the more he eats, until he can no longer fit through the door.
