Fishing With Grandma

A boy and his younger sister Jeela go on an ice fishing adventure with Anaanatsiaq (grandma). The story is told by the boy in a first-person point of view. He is excited to spend the October day with her and Jeela out on the frozen lake, Anaanatsiaq seems know everything. She teaches the children how to ice fish using traditional Inuit tools such as a jig and a the tuuq (long wooden tool with a sharp chisel). They deliver their catch to some of the elders in their village who are too old to go down to the lake. The boy loves his Anaanatsiaq and she loves them.

The characters illustrated in this book are done in a cute cartoon style, incorporated with a vivid digital and graphic design.
