The Shadows that Rush Past: A Collection of Frightening Inuit Folktales is an amazing collection of four scary traditional stories from the Inuit retold with precision and vibrancy by Rachel Qitsualik, Inuk educator and storyteller. Each story engages readers with a frightening account of a monster or creature from the Arctic. The read aloud stories capture the imagination of the listener in the conversational tone of each account. Using suspense and irony the author takes us back to a time when monsters and larger than life polar bears roamed the region. The lessons in each story are set out for the reader in a matter of fact manner as the storyteller says Pijariiqpunga (all I have to say) at the end of each account. The stories are accompanied by scary illustrations of the monsters drawn by Emily Fiegenschuh and Larry MacDougall. Highly recommended.
