I Am A Rock
What does the Arctic look like to a pet rock?
Pauloosie loves his pet rock, Miki Rock. Pauloosie’s Anaana, his mother, tells him a bedtime story about what Miki Rock sees, hears, and feels in his Arctic home. As part of the land, Miki Rock sees char and beluga, listens to chirps and howls, and feels the snow and sun.
Through lyrical text and ethereal landscape illustrations by Pelin Turgut, readers are taken on an Arctic journey from the point of view of a most unlikely object—a child’s pet rock.
"In soft-edged scenes that foreground the Inuit-cued parent and child alongside Miki Rock, Turkish illustrator Turgut connects domestic moments with sprawling landscapes, while sensory lines from Inuit author Qilavaq-Savard links Pauloosie—and readers—to the land through Miki Rock’s experiences."- Publishers Weekly
