The girl Pebble and the dog
The seal hunter "The two seals catches with one hand" is proud of his daughter, to whom he has given the name "pebble that rolls in the sea surf". So proud that he refuses to give her to the "boy who rides on the Northern Lights" as his wife. Because the hunter is still strong enough to take care of himself and his family. He is not yet dependent on the help of a strong son-in-law. If one day the hunter will need this help, daughter Kiesel swears defiantly, then she would rather marry a dog than a man tended by the father. Full of anger at so much obstinacy, the hunter takes his daughter at her word: Pebbles and a sled dog born on the same day as her must become a couple. In order not to be exposed to the ridicule of other people, Kiesel flees with the dog "Who resists the tide" to an uninhabited island.
With this touching love story, the author Katrin Lange takes you into a distant and strange world, to people who live under the toughest conditions in the eternal ice and do not see the sun for months. She tells how out of disgust and hurt a great love grows. With the means of fairy tales and theatre, where people transform into animals and animals into humans, the cycle of life of becoming and passing away can be experienced over several generations.
Based on an Inuit fairy tale. From 7 years.
