Long, long ago, living creatures could wear any shape they wished. Some flew to the Moon. Others dove to the bottom of the Sea. Animals could have any shape they wishes, so they chose whatever they thought was lovely. In The Walrus Who Escaped, young readers will discover a walrus with beautiful, spiralled tusks, not the long, straight tusks that we recognize today! When Raven comes across Walrus expertly diving for clams, she quickly becomes jealous of Walrus’s great clam-hunting skills. So, just as Walrus is about to surface with a tasty mouthful of clams, Raven uses the strength of the land toward on the ocean, freezing Walrus in place. Walrus’s curly, twisting tusks become frozen in the enchanted ice. But Raven soon learns that his magic is no match for Walrus’s great physical strength. Walrus manages to escape, but his tusks will never be the same. This picture book story written by Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley is an engaging story about the walrus and the raven and explains why the walrus has slightly curved husks. Illustrated by Anthony Brennan' colourful characters makes this a great read aloud for primary level students. Recommended.
