Ukaliq and Kalla Go Fishing
Author: Nadia Mike
Traditional Territory: Inuit
Format: Hardcover
  • Ukaliq and Kalla are two friends who could not be more different.

    Ukaliq is loud, excited, and always looking for adventure. Kalla on the other hand, is calm, quiet, and knows it’s best to be well prepared before travelling out on the land or sea ice.

    When the two friends head out for a day of fishing, Ukaliq can barely wait to get his line in the water - but his eagerness to catch a fish may just leave him empty handed in the end.

    There is a lot Kalla could teach Ukaliq about a successful fishing trip, if only Ukaliq would sit still long enough to listen!

    Review
    "Ukaliq and Kalla Go Fishing is a classic story of two friends who are complete opposites... What makes this story unique is the setting and the dynamic between the characters. The story takes place in the Arctic, a setting which provides surroundings, animals, and terminology that children may not be familiar with (for example, the animals 'snow bunting' and 'char', and words like 'qamutiik' and 'jerry can'). Fortunately, the majority of new words can be figured out in context and through examination of the pictures." — CM Magazine

Un saumon pour Simon
Author: Betty Waterton
Format: Paperback
  • Translated in 2014

    Simon has always longed to catch a salmon. But when his luck suddenly changes and an eagle accidentally drops one into a tidal pool, Simon is torn between sympathy for the fish and the desire to catch something of his own.

    All summer long, Simon, a young First Nations boy, has been desperate to catch a salmon. He goes fishing every day, but has no luck. Then one day a high-flying eagle drops a salmon into a clam hole right before his eyes, and Simon must decide whether to take it home or let it go.

    This simple story, with its evocative watercolor paintings of the Northwest Coast, was an environmental fable before its time when it was first published in 1978. But its true power rests in the magical combination of text and pictures, which have made it a best-selling classic.
