From the Publisher
Annotation Eva, an Inuit girl, goes searching for shellfish under the ice, but she lingers too long and barely avoids disaster.
Editors Note Eva lives in an Inuit village in northern Canada. In the winter, people search along the bottom of the seabed beneath a thick shelf of ice for mussels to eat. Eva usually helps her mother, but for the first time, she's going to go by herself. She soon gathers a pan full of mussels. But then, her candle goes out, and the tide threatens to return! When she is finally safe with her mother, Eva proclaims, "That was my very last first time walking alone on the bottom of the sea." An ALA Notable Children's Book, Very Last First Time comes from one of Canada's most distinguished storytellers and an award-winning illustrator. "A unique experience for young listeners and an intriguing introduction to another culture." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "An extraordinary picture book experience." - The New York Times Book Review
