Review Text

An authentic story of Eskimo living told in a straightforward and understanding manner by anthropologist William Lipkind with sensitive, detailed drawings by Nicholas Mordvinoff. Children whose social studies concern Eskomo culture will be interested in the exploits of "Little Seal," a courageous twelve year old who catches a seal, a bear, and a bowhead whale with his harpoon - unheard of feats for a boy his age - and so earns a place among the men of his village. Good for reading aloud from seven up, though the subject matter will not be appealing to all children. (Kirkus Reviews)
