“ The story, told from the boy’s point of view, takes place on a snowy, windy, spring day in Barrow. Amiqqaq’s father’s whaling crew has been given a bowhead whale and, in celebration, named the whale Amiqqaq. Edwardson’s simple prose highlights Amizzaq’s feelings of elation, warmth, and wonder, as well as sensations of the taste, smell, and feel of the whale’s gift… Patterson’s lovely watercolors spread across double pages. Outdoor scenes in lavenders, grays, and aqua show the spring light filtering through snow showers…”---Ancborage Daily News.
