"This book is based on an Inuit traditional story. The author was inspired by a version of this traditional story from the Kivalliq region of Nunavut, where she grew up. The story you are about to read is a creative retelling of this original story."--Facing title page.
"When two rabbit sisters ignore their parents' warnings and decide to play outside on the open tundra, a hungry owl soon spots them and decides they will make a delicious meal. As a chase ensues, the sisters must act quickly, using the owl's own greed against him in order to get away. A traditional Inuit story and cautionary tale, this book presents a centuries-old narrative for a new generation of readers."-- Provided by publisher.
