Baseball Bats for Christmas

A picture book written by Michael Kusugak.

Michael Kusugak, illustrated by Vladyana Langer Krykorka

The year is 1955 and Arvaarluk and his friends watch as Rocky Parsons lands his plane on the ice in Repulse Bay, a tiny community "smack dab on the Arctic Circle." Having never seen trees before, the children try to guess what the six green spindly things are that Rocky delivers. One of the boys has a brilliant idea: why not use them as baseball bats? (From Annick Press)
