Author Notes

Nadia Mike is an Inuit educator, who recently graduated with a Bachelor of Education from the University of Regina. Although Nadia has lived in many communities across the North, she considers Iqaluit, Nunavut, her home. Nadia has two daughters, Leah and Jaime, who constantly teach her to be less serious and enjoy every day. These two girls have also reminded Nadia of the importance of children's literature, and having stories with settings, characters, and themes that show children that their lives and cultures are important enough to be in books. Nadia loves to travel, cook, sew, and drink strong coffee. In 2014, Nadia published her first book, an Inuktitut-language first-words board book. In 2016, she published Leah's Mustache Party, her first picture book, followed by Ukaliq and Kalla Go Fishing in 2017.Tamara Campeau is an illustrator residing in a small town called Port-Cartier in northern Quebec. She studied at Sheridan College, where she spent four years attaining her Bachelor of Illustration. When she is not illustrating, she can be found working out outside or at the local gym or spending time with her better half and their brown poodle, Pinut.
