Very Last First Time
By Jan Andrews and Ian Wallace
This is an extraordinary picture book experience for kids of all ages. It contains a remarkable story, told in a very expressive way.
Every winter in Eva’s Inuit village on Ungava Bay in Northern Canada, the people walk on the bottom of the frozen sea to gather mussels. Eva has done this with her mother ever since she was a little girl. But today is a special day. Today for the first time, Eva is going to walk on the bottom of the sea all alone.
This classic picture book captures the eerie, fantastic world that lies between the bottom of the sea and the ice above and lets the reader share a very special experience of a small Inuit girl.
