Product description


“Only in the Arctic, a world of sculpins and krill, tundra and brilliant northern lights, could the story of Elisapee and Her Baby Seagull be as real as it is.”―CanLit for Little Canadians

“The lively illustrations capture the emotion of the story and offer a glimpse into childhood in Nunavut.”―Hakai Magazine

“. . . [A] worthy addition to picture book collections in schools and public libraries.”―CM Magazine

“. . . [A] heartwarming tale of friendship filled with arctic charm and culture.”―Foreword Reviews

“. . . [A] nice introduction for children to learn of different places and customs. It could also be a nice read for children having a pet for the first time.”―Youth Services Book Review

"Charming, sweet, and beautifully illustrated . . .”―The Book Wars

She has travelled around the world with a band called The Jerry Cans where her biggest passion was to empower other Indigenous people across the globe. Nancy is also an anaana (mother) to three beautiful girls and hopes to inspire them to love their culture and language . . . and to embrace intellectual endeavours as Indigenous people themselves.
