The story of how the world came to be on the turtle's back can be found in Indigenous cultures throughout North America/Turtle Island. It has many variations. This moving version of the tale--a story of resilience, sacrifice, and friendship--is one that Annie Picard was often told as a child by her maternal grandmother while they lived in nutshimit (on the land) in the Labrador/Quebec peninsula. Picard's lovely re-telling of this traditional Innu story of how little muskrat makes an enormous sacrifice to help the wolverine and his other friends rebuild the world after a great flood is brought vividly to life by Elizabeth Jancewicz's stunning illustrations. This book, a co-publication with Mamu Tshishkutamashutau Innu Education, features a Labrador dialect of Innu-aimun, spoken predominantly in the Sheshatshiu area.
