What creatures lurk beneath the sea ice?
Putuguq and Kublu – two siblings who can’t seem to get along- are about to find out!
On their way to the shoreline, Putuguq and Kublu run into their grandfather, who has a stern warning for the pair: always beware when playing on the shore, because you never know if a qalupalik, a mythical creature that kidnaps children, is lying in wait under the ice.
Kublu is pretty sure their grandfather is just trying to spook them with a scary story from the past….but maybe not?
