The Haunted Igloo by Aurorawolf
For someone afraid of the dark, living in the Arctic is a severe test of courage. There the sun doesn't shine for several months. Jean-Paul, a young Canadian boy, struggles to hide his fear and adjust to life in the Northwest Territories, where he is taunted and excluded from activities by a group of Inuit boys because of his small size and a limp caused by a birth defect.
When Jean-Paul finally succeeds in impressing the boys with the tricks he's taught his husky, Sasha, they agree to let him join their club, the Ice Patrol. But as part of the initiation, they force him into a deserted igloo that is rumored to be haunted, where he must remain for two hours. The forced imprisonment, with no light and only Sasha for company, proves to be just the beginning of the most serious challenges to face Jean-Paul in the harsh Arctic environment.
Set in the 1930s, this novel is an exciting story of ordeal and courage, of friendship and loyalty. Readers will sympathize immediately with young Jean-Paul and will be charmed by Sasha, the beautiful husky puppy that steals everyone's heart.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Several years ago, while living in Michigan, Bonnie Turner and her family adopted a husky named Sasha, the same name as Jean-Paul's dog in the story. For Bonnie Turner, that exciting event led to a lasting interest in Inuit culture and life in the Arctic, and to the writing of The Haunted Igloo.
But while Sasha may have spurred the author's interest in writing this book, she has always enjoyed writing and telling stories to children and comes from a family of artists and poets. The Haunted Igloo is her first book for children.
After the first edition of The Haunted Igloo was published, the author visited local schools with a handmade, life-size Inuit doll, lecturing students on the importance of reading and writing, and passing out polar bear hugs along with her autograph. Her huge supply of fan mail testifies to the popularity of this heart-warming book set in the Arctic.
Bonnie Turner lives in Wisconsin.
