Fish-Boy An Inuit Folk Tale by Vanita Oelschlager

Downloaded through Netgalley to read for an honest review. 

Rating: 4/5

When to buy: May 1, 2018

Summary: An Inuit boy and his grandfather with his team sail out to trade with a hunter on the other island. They arrive on the island where the grandfather tells the story of fish-boy and his adoptive father. They, too, are trying to trade/work with other villages but it doesn’t go well. Fish-boy turns the men who weren’t nice into sea-parrots permanently.

It is listed age range of first grade to fourth grade. It would be a great read aloud for the younger grades. There is enough to spread the story out a few days, especially, if you’re working on folktales.

The illustrations in this are lovely, calming and fun throughout the book.

Recommend? Yes, definitely recommend this book.
