The Littlest Sled Dog

Little Igvillu, a Cairn terrier puppy, was born in Red Deer, Alberta. Her mother told her stories about dogs from all around the world. As she learned about different types of dogs, she decided she wanted to be a sled dog when she grew up. On day the owners of the kennel told her that a storyteller from northern Canada was adopting her. Igvillu was going to live in Rankin Inlet in Nunavut. She loved her new home and all the places she had to run and play, but she still dreamed of being a sled dog. One day when she was walking with her master she met real sled dogs and they were mean and growled at her. She decided that she no longer wanted to be a sled dog. She was happy in her warm, cozy house with her master. This descriptive, sentimental story is told in third person with dialog. Illustrations are a combination of detailed pen & ink and impressionistic pastels.
