Publisher: Gullane

A little Inuit girl has a fairly harsh and lonely life until the day she catches a brightly coloured, wooden bird at the end of her fishing rod.

Each day she fishes more bright and beautiful knick-knacks until her igloo is so cheery it attracts visitors from far and wide who enliven her world.

When the ice starts to melt, Immi knows it is time to move on but gives a gift back to the sea hoping it will one day find its way to someone whose life will be a little richer for it.

Beautiful watercolour illustrations skilfully reflect the changes in Immi's life and outlook and give depth to this simple but thought-provoking picture book.
