Nunavummi Reading Series Big Book: The Owl and the Lemming
Artists:
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 3;

As Owl swoops down and blocks the entrance to a lemming den, he is sure that he has a tasty meal in the little animal he has cornered. But this lemming is not about to be eaten! This smart little rodent will need to appeal to the boastful owl's sense of pride to get away.

This fun and cheeky tale is accompanied by full-colour still photographs of custom-built characters on a hand-built set.

Reviews
"This story is beautifully written with colour illustrations. The owl and the lemming take on animated appearances, while the background takes on an appearance almost photographic in nature. The book is highly recommended for study of aboriginal stories and lore. It is also a wonderful independent read and a model for storytelling and writing."— Resource Links
