Hide and Sneak

This is another Kusugak book based on his childhood memories of growing up in the Arctic. It tells the story of the day Allashua, a young Inuit girl, goes to play hide and seek despite her mother’s warning about the Ijiraq, who likes to hide people away where they can’t be found. Allashua isn’t very good at hide and seek, and always gets distracted her surroundings. While distracted, she meets the Ijiraq, who wants to play hide and seek with her. When Allashua finds that the Ijiraq won’t let her go from their hiding place, she must figure out how to get away and find her way home. Along the way, she learns what inuksugaq (inuksuk) are for.

Kusugak is the author of Baseball Bats for Christmas and My Arctic 1, 2, 3. Krykorka has illustrated all of Michael Arvaarluk Kusugak’s books.
