    1. It is rare that I read folktales from Yupik, so when I stumbled upon a book called “The Hungry Giant of the Tundra,” I just had to see for myself how this story would turn out and man was I extremely impressed with this story!The story starts out with a group of children playing across the fields in a village far to the north. Even though the children were supposed to run home before the big giant A· ka· gua ·gan ·kak came across the tundra, the children were having so much fun that they [...]

    2. Children will enjoy the slow, plodding pronunciation of the giant's name: A•ka•gua•gan•kak. And, yes, if children were familiar with this formidable "bad guy" they wouldn't want to wander far into the tundra by themselves. Especially since the giant chants, "I found little children warm in the sun. I'll eat them all one by one." Intentionally meant, I assume, to sound like 'Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum.'The art by Sloat, children, tundra, chickadees, and a crane all make for a guaranteed good book.

    3. In this story of an old Yupik Eskimo tale,that captured children outwit the enemy in a classic story of "little" triumphing over "big." When it's time for dinner,the hungry giant goes looking for children who didn't go inside when their parents called them in.When the children play outside too long, the hungry giant captures them. Then the children escape with the help of two birds in this folktale story.This story is for grade level K-2.

    4. A group of Yupik children disobey their parents’ call to return home from playing in the tundra and are captured by a hungry giant for dinner. With the help of a chickadee and a crane, the children return home safely and the giant is surprisingly defeated. The Sloats used earthy tones in watercolor for the background and colored pencil for the characters. This fast paced, humorous tale will entertain young listeners and readers alike.

    5. The Hungry Giant of the Tundra by Teri Sloat (Dutton Children's Books 1993) (Fiction - Children's) is a book that my kids adored when they were very young (ages 2-5). This is a picture and story book of a Yupik Indian tale about a mean giant and the consequences that await kids who don't come home for dinner when they are called. We read this book over and over (and over) as a bedtime story; I bought myself a copy from years later. My rating: 8/10, finished 1998.

    6. This is a cute Native Alaskan story, that reminded me of Jack and the Bean Stock. Not the same, but similar, I couldn't help but add FEE FI FO FOM, before the Giant said anything. :)Fun to read to the kids.
