Magic Words

by Mike Blanc

Magic Words is based on the expedition notes of the Danish explorer, Knud Rasmussen.  My maiden name is Rasmussen and, as a child, I used to wish that I was related to Knud.  So when I was this book I was interested in what he learned about the Inuits.

This is a very old creation story where people and animals share bodies and languages.  I think children will find the story confusing, as I did, but the pictures are wonderful and will spark the imagination.
