Sanna, the powerful Mother of the Sea from Inuit traditional stories, is brought to life through the eyes of the curious explorer, Ullak

One day, Ullak forgets her grandma's warning about playing on the ice pans and is suddenly kidnapped by a sea monster.

Ullak is brought to Sanna, the controller of the water and weather, at the bottom of the sea. Together they visit different Arctic sea animals and learn all about them. Ullak is having a lot of fun exploring underwater, but it's getting late. Will she be able to convince Sanna to help her find her way home?

About the Author

Suzie Napayok-Short was born in Iqaluit, NT. At the time, her father worked with the Canadian teams at the early northern Distant Early Warning (DEW) Defense sites. Eventually they moved to Southampton Island, the one place located between the Baffin and the Kivalliq regions, with wildlife and sea mammals surrounding the island and the area. Each spring meant the sea ice begins slowly disappearing for the season of summer and wildlife would abound with the return of the many different breeding birds ranging from geese to peregrine falcons, the thick-billed murres, to the sandpipers. The whales are also back. She grew up in this tradition during her childhood. Suzie authored two other children's books along with Wild Eggs that was nominated for a Silver Birch award as her first children's book in 2017. She lives in Yellowknife, NWT and bases most of her stories on legends she learned throughout her childhood and her own experiences with wildlife.
