In the far North, a young girl named Missuk dreams of carving snow geese out of soapstone. Her father has promised to teach her when he returns from his hunt. But a fierce storm strikes. Fortunately, Missuk's special snow geese are waiting to guide him home.
Anne Renaud’s experience of living in Northern Quebec gave flight to the story of Missuk's Snow Geese. She has written three other picture books, including A Bloom of Friendship: The Story of the Canadian Tulip Festival, which was nominated for the 2007 Red Cedar Award?, the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award, and the Silver Birch Award.?
Geneviève Côté has illustrated several books over the years, such as The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, Wishes by Jean Little, Ella May and the Wishing Stone by Cary Fagan, The Little Word Catcher by Danielle Simard, and many more. She has also written, in both english and french, a few stories of her own: Mr. King’s Things, Without You, Me and You, What Elephant?, and With You always, Little Monday. Her editorial art has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, l’Actualité and other such publications. She has won the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award in 2005, the General Governor’s Award for Illustration in 2007, and the Marilyn Baillie Award in 2012. She lives in Montreal, Quebec.
