Des battes de baseball pour Noel is a children's picture book by well known Inuit author and storyteller Michael Kusugak. This is the French edition of Kusugak's wonderful Baseball Bats for Christmas book. The author draws on an event from his childhood when he was seven and still lived in Repulse Bay. It is Christmas 1955 when an airplane arrives in the community and the pilot leaves behind six Christmas trees. Many of the children have never seen a Christmas tree; in fact there are no trees in their northern environment.
Tes Chaussettes Sentent la Mouffette! is the French edition of Smelly Socks by children's author Robert Munsch. This is a wonderful story that takes its inspiration from a Dene girl named Tina who lived in Hay River, Northwest Territories. On one of Munsch's storytelling events in Canada's North during the 1980s he met a young girl named Tina Fabian. Since the audience for this reading was small, Munsch created individualized stories for each child present. On that day Tina was wearing multicoloured socks and so Robert Munsch made up a story about these socks on the spot.
Ribambelle de rubans is the French edition of Ribbon Rescue by children's author Robert Munsch.

The girl selflessly assists others during her walk to the community church when she encounters the harried groom who is lost and missing his shoe laces, the distressed bride whose hair is all askew, and a family whose wedding gift is in need of wrapping.
