Ituku's Christmas Journey
A tale of the Arctic people, in which little hunter travels from the frozen north in search of the newborn king. After many weeks, the hunter paddles wearily to shore. As he shares a meal of bread and fishes with a man, his wife, and their newborn son, he realises that he has found the king... and that he has bread and fish to share with all humankind as he tells his story. A lovely story with ethnic detailing - and many wide eyed creatures! - that highlights the inclusiveness of the Christmas story.
