It is the first blizzard of the season and the snowy streets in Norah's neighbourhood are unrecognizable. Curious, Norah goes outside to discover a polar landscape featuring astonishing Inuit sculptures. Meeting a cast of dreamlike characters, she learns to look beyond immediate appearances. Inspired by the creativity and richness of Inuit art and culture, this magical story is set in Quebec's Far North. Nicolas Dickner takes us on a fabulous journey to the heart of imagination.
Boulevard Banquise is part of a series of tales for children, published by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Some 20 works by Inuit artists from the Brousseau Inuit Art Collection illustrate this marvellous book.
