Description

Leslie is new to the Arctic, and no one told her there would be so much snow, and so many interesting animals to see. Along with her new friend, Oolipika, Leslie soon discovers one the Arctic's most unique and breathtaking natural wonders, the northern lights.
Having never seen such lights before, Leslie is understandably shocked by them. Oolipika, on the other hand, knows that the ancient lights are more than just colours, and that the mischievous, playful spirits that the northern lights hold can be dangerous.
This contemporary narrative introduces young readers to an Inuit legend about the northern lights, followed by an epilogue that explains the science behind this amazing natural phenomenon.

About the authors

Carolyn Mallory vit à Iqaluit, où elle partage son temps entre son travail à la bibliothèque et l’écriture. Depuis son arrivée au Nunavut, en 1999, elle a consacré une grande partie de son temps à se renseigner sur la nature qui l’entoure. Cet ouvrage est son deuxième, après le très populaire Plantes communes du Nunavut, qu’elle a rédigé en collaboration avec Susan Aiken. L’étude des insectes lui semblait une suite naturelle à l’étude des plantes. Carolyn travaille actuellement à plusieurs projets de fiction et elle a publié son premier poème cette année.
