Hide and Sneak


by Michael Kusugak
illustrated by Vladyana Krykorka

On the great tundra plains of Nunavut, there is a creature that just loves to play hide and seek. The only problem with this creature is, if it helps you hide, no one will ever find you again. Well, Allashua loves to play hide and seek…


One lovely afternoon Allashua is lured into mischief by a charming but sneaky little creature.
