Product Description: Eva lives in an Inuit village in northern Canada where people search along the bottom of the seabed beneath a thick shelf of ice for mussels to eat in the winter. Eva usually helps her mother, but for the first time, she's going to go by herself. On the ice, her candle goes out, and the tide threatens to return! When she is finally safe with her mother, Eva proclaims, "That was my very last first time walking alone on the bottom of the sea." ALA Notable Children's Book.
