Legend of the Fog
In this traditional Inuit story, a simple walk on the tundra becomes a life or death journey for a young man. When he comes across a giant who wants to take him home and cook him for dinner, the young man's quick thinking saves him from being devoured by the giant and his family, and in the process releases the first fog into the world.
Written by Cape Dorest elder Qaunaq Mikkigak and Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award-nominated author Joanne Schwartz, this action-packed picture book brings a centuries-old traditional tale to life for modern readers.

The Legend of the Fog (adapted by Joanne Schwarz) is a great book to pick up. From entertaining a group at a campfire to teaching junior kids a survival lesson, this is a great mythical story that should be told all around the world. This story is about an adult who needs to ride out some villains using intelligence and creativity, in the end he managed to get through it. This fable will prove to kids that knowledge is the most important skill.
Learning about Inuit peoples? Then this is a book for you! The Legend of the Fog is a book written by Qaunaq Mikkigak and Joanne Schwarz and illustrated by Danny Christopher. This book is the story of how fog is said to have first come to the world. It follows a man named Qaunngauvaniq and how he used his knowledge to outsmart a Tuurngaq, a creature the he and his people fear. In my opinion, this is a story that could be told to people of all ages, not just adults and not just children.
