Muskox is the third of three books in a new non-fiction series from Inhabit Media “Animals Illustrated” – “an Inuit-owned publishing company located in Iqaluit, Nunavut…the only independent publishing company located in the Canadian Arctic.  Our aim is to preserve and promote the stories, knowledge and talent of Inuit and northern Canada”.
Written for an elementary school audience, using readable text and simple sentences, information is organized under 10 topics listed in a Table of Contents (e.g. Skeleton, Diet, Babies, Predators, adaptations and other interesting facts).  Concise information is presented under bold headings with about two pages of text per topic.  The text is supported by clearly labelled diagrams, and evocative water-colour  illustrations by Kagan McLeod that capture the size and strength of these unique northern creatures.
An excellent new Canadian resource to support student learning and inquiry, with particular interest to Grade 2 and Grade 5 Social Studies topics that focus on the Arctic.
Other books in the “Animals Illustrated” series:  Polar Bear, Narwhal.
