The Walrus and the Caribou
The Walrus and the Caribou is a story from Alaskan legend. Alaska, like from the TV show Molly of Denali. First, Guk breathed life into the whole world, and she made the walrus and the caribou. But they had different body parts. There were horns on the walrus and tusks on the caribou. The walrus with horns was a big problem. The caribou charging the hunters with his tusks was a big problem. The hunters were scared of the caribou because of his tusks. So Guk switched them.
I enjoy reading about legends from other places, and this one was good too. It explains the story of the past, when people didn’t know how animals got their shapes. The pictures by Marcus Cutler were good, and I’d like to read more Alaskan myths after reading this book.
