From the elusive water-dwelling fairies that swim through Arctic waters, to the dwarves that can grow to the size of a giant when threatened, to the magic little folk who can speak to the wind and will the climate and weather to change, the adventures and unique abilities of these little-known mythological creatures are sure to delight any young fans of European fairy tales.

About the Authors
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.
