The dark nature of the tale is mitigated by the style of illustration: Bright pastel colors cover each page, and the soft features of the owl and pink-eared rabbits alleviate some of the tension in the life-and-death struggle.This traditional Inuit story from Nunavut teaches children the importance of parental guidance—with a dash of excitement.
