Inhaltsangabe: Once only Mouse knew, and kept to himself, the stories of how the world came to be until angry Lightning broke down Mouse's door and the stories escaped into the world.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-4--Tikkatoo's Journey is an Eskimo folktale that will be unfamiliar to most readers (no sources are given). An ice spirit enters the heart of Tikkatoo's grandfather, making him ill; without his guidance the entire village suffers. Only Tikkatoo, the youngest and smallest, volunteers to get a flame of fire from the Sun to help his grandfather's frozen heart. The text lacks the economy of the best retellings, but the fascinating images may inspire children to dream up their own fantastic journeys. The plot is simple and not particularly compelling, but there is a sense of triumph in a small boy's showing up the disdainful but cowardly adult hunters. The art carries the book. Fanciful watercolor paintings feature decorative borders, and the locations and creatures Tikkatoo encounters are exotic and stir the imagination. The Moon-spotted dog, however, looks as though he has a skin disease. Delicate greens, blues, and beige pervade, with touches of brilliant oranges and yellows. In How Stories Came Into the World , Troughton combines five stories from West Africa under the mantle of the myth of Mouse, who weaves story pictures of all that she sees. Each story is approximately three spreads long; all deal with banishment or relocation. Although brief, all of the retellings but one are satisfying. The collection ends nicely, when Mouse's stories escape to wander the Earth. The lively cartoon-style art appears to be done in watercolor, ink, and perhaps wax crayons. Troughton's book is better for reading aloud, and it will appeal to older children with limited skills. --Marilyn Iarusso, New York Public Library
