WALLACE, Mary




Author Tags: Kidlit & Young Adult

An inuksuk is being used as the official symbol of the 2010 Winter Games, so Toronto's Mary Wallace wrote a picture book, I is for Inuksuk (Owl 2009), as a tie-in to the Olympics for children. Each letter of the word “inuksuk” is represented in an acrostic poem by another Inuktitut word, which, with Wallace’s paintings, creates an overview of life in the Arctic. Wallace's three previous titles are Inuksuk Journey, Make Your Own Inuksuk, and The Inuksuk Book.
