    A short, harrowing tale of how an Inuit man was able to keep himself alive for 4 days while stranded on the sea ice in Baffin Bay. He details how he remembers what he was taught as a child to survive the severe cold. It's a quick and interesting read. Received a review copy from Inhabit Media and NetGalley. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    This had a really neat premise and it was interesting to see insight into this setting, but I knew going into it that it felt a little worrisome that the book was only 48 pages, and I was right to be concerned. It's so short that nothing really happens, and there's so little text on each page that it makes this issue even more prominent. Altogether, I was sadly bored and ready for it to end even with how short it was. Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange f This had a really neat premise and it was interesting to see insight into this setting, but I knew going into it that it felt a little worrisome that the book was only 48 pages, and I was right to be concerned.

The story flew by so quickly that I didn't have time to fear for him, to really see him struggle to survive. I think that is key to a survival story. I enjoyed reading the novel but I didn't take much from it. I think the art is done well in this book and complements the story. Since its such a quick read, give it a chance. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinions.

    This is a short graphic novel of how the author, Serapio Ittussardjuat, an Inuit man, survived four days stranded on the ice when his snowmobile broke down. The author stresses the survival skills that he had been taught by others and show how they saved his life. It brings to mind the importance of sharing your knowledge with and teaching others. You never know how much it might help them in the future. I also enjoyed the illustrations of Matthew Hoddy. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4.

    I enjoyed the art style of this graphic novel. The story itself was a bit too simplistic. It is meant for children, but I have read many children's books and this was still more simple than I would prefer for my child's library. What I did like was that it was a setting and event (survival in extreme cold temperatures) that most children wouldn't have experienced, so it would be a good book to expose kids to those potentially new experiences.

    I’m not certain of the intended audience for this one, but it misses the mark for any that come to mind. It is too basic and lacks detail that a teen or adult reader would want, and the vocabulary is too advanced in many places for younger readers. The illustrations are nicely done. I could see the book as the script and visual aids for a presentation for older children in which the author could stop along the way for questions and explanations.

    Ittusardjuat’s How I Survived Four Nights on the Ice serves as a good reminder about what to do when stranded in the wilderness as the short graphic novel is equipped with survival skills passed by indigenous people. Because of its simplistic overview of the survival skills and its short length (literally 26 pages on the computer), I think this graphic novel is best suited for young children.

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a short graphic novel with pretty good illustrations. There really wasn't much to the story. I was expecting a bit more depth and information on how he survived four nights on the ice. Overall, this was just so so.

    How I Survived is a short but interesting true story of Serapio Ittusardjuat, an Inuit man who had to survive for four nights on his broken-down snowmobile, trying to keep himself alive until rescue came. The set up for this story had much potential, provided it was based on a true one. And while there were some interesting pointers on survival (such as keeping yourself dry to prevent catching hypothermia), it wasn't as in-depth as one would hope for in a survival tale.

And while there were some interesting pointers on survival (such as keeping yourself dry to prevent catching hypothermia), it wasn't as in-depth as one would hope for in a survival tale. I'm sure this man had to greatly struggle for those past few days, but as a narrative, not much dangers or stakes were given. Since you're expecting him to survive, the way he gets through it should be thrilling; instead, it's quite lacking. The colour palette of the art was nice to look at, and the style itself was pretty sufficient for telling the story. It's detailed and, given the barren landscape, did a good job of keeping the visuals interesting. This story is as simple as it can get; short in length, simple in its storytelling. While that isn't a terrible thing, it does have the potential to be more in-depth overall. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

This title is a short and to the point tale about how lessons from a distant past can suddenly be very valuable in a modern world. The language and the art are simple and clean.

While it is lacking some complexity that would make the book more satisfying for adults and teens, the directness of the story makes it useful for the elementary school set. Younger children that are interested in survival type stories may enjoy this - although there is real danger represented and parents of sensitive children need to know this. For the middle grade set, this book would be especially effective when paired with longer works to compliment. Call of the Wild, The Horizon series, Hatchett, I Survived books... all would work in tandem with this book in different ways. The middling rating for this book is reflective of its extreme simplicity. Purchasing this book works for a library collection, when the budget allows for other books to compliment. If this is the only book your collection can afford of this type, you should pass in favor of others. One major bonus for this book is the #OwnVoices status of the writer.

    How I survived on the Ice is a short nonfiction graphic novel about an individual who uses his skills and knowledge as an Indigenous person to stay alive after his snowmobile breaks down far from his home.

Serapio was out fishing far from his home in the Arctic when his snowmobile breaks down. He has very few supplies and no water, but uses his knowledge of the Arctic climate and survival techniques to survive four nights on the sea ice. Some pages are one single image with ice in all directions; the visuals provide an effective reminder of the desolation and danger of the Arctic climate. The author shares with readers that he was never afraid because he remembered the lessons of his elders. Readers who enjoy reading stories of survival will be interested to learn specific ways to survive in the Arctic and the dangers of certain strategies. It’s very sparse and short. I wanted more details and more text. Perhaps some extra nonfiction text elements with explanations of certain survival strategies or Indigenous traditions would have filled out this resource.

    How I Survived recounts Ittusardjuat’s story of when his snowmobile breaks down in the middle nowhere. He must use his knowledge of the land to keep him alive. Originally, I did not realize that this was a children’s book. However, as a children’s book I think it tells a fantastic lesson of Indigenous Peoples and their knowledge of the land and the past. What I really liked about this is that it genuinely sounded like Ittusardjuat was telling the story aloud as I read.

I also appreciated some of the additional materials such as maps and translations as I learned new things from this and I believe other readers will too. This is a very short book though and I wished there were more examples of how his knowledge of the langue helped him survive. I do not think this should be categorized as middle grade, but it would be a wonderful children’s book, adding much-needed representation in the genre.

    Hmmm this had so much potential - how does one survive on the open ice for four whole days?? But it was less than 50 pages long, and with very few words at that, so it really skimmed the surface of the story. I mean, I still don’t understand how he survived. For starters, the whole moral of the story was that lessons taught in childhood can be life-saving late in life (which is a great moral for kids!) so I would have loved more background on his upbringing. Instead we got 2 panels. Then, it cou Hmmm this had so much potential - how does one survive on the open ice for four whole days??

Then, it could’ve done with some more suspense building - start with childhood stories that you don’t know are going to be important, then get into the main story of his leaving home, add much more detail into the timeline so we understand better the passage of time, and add more details in general like the temperatures, what and how much he ate - really draw the reader into the story so they understand the isolation and the gravity of his situation!

    The author relates a story of survival based on his experience in 2008 when he was traveling from a fishing camp in Iqaluit to his home in Igloolik when his snowmobile broke down when he went off-trail on some sea ice. Drawing on lessons learned from his elders, he spent four nights on the ice. Young readers will be impressed at his resilience and certainty that everything would turn out okay and how he was smart enough not to try to travel home on foot or venture far from the vehicle.

Young readers will be impressed at his resilience and certainty that everything would turn out okay and how he was smart enough not to try to travel home on foot or venture far from the vehicle. He remembered to place his gloves inside his outer clothing to keep them warm and figure out a way to melt water for drinking in order to avoid dehydration. In the end, the author claims that he survived because he knew what to do, an important assertion for all readers. I'm sure that I wouldn't have had the same knowledge to have taken the steps he did. The use of cartoon-like illustrations and panels adds to the story's appeal.

In this way, the book illuminates the survival of indigenous cultures and counteracts stereotypes that indigenous cultures are static. I wish the author had shared more of his internal experiences. The book skips over fear, loneliness, desperation, and other feelings someone trapped in the Arctic would likely feel. This was disappointing and made the book less powerful. Overall, an enjoyable and informative book. Wish I could rate it 3 1/2 stars but I am rounding up to four.

Whether you're looking for a short and exciting graphic memoir or a reminder of the values of traditional knowledge, this book delivers, with some engaging art and storytelling along the way.

    Simple enough to be a children's book, but profoundly intense in its banality, this is a story that has so much more going on below the surface. On the surface, it's about a guy whose snowmobile dies and he basically waits, on the snowmobile, for four days. But it's also about survival being more about matter-of-fact levelheadedness than harrowing adventure and man vs. nature cleverness. It's about people for whom life-and-death survival is a daily occurrence and how that informs culture.

Most importantly, it is told in words of the man who lived it, I'm guessing verbatim, and it's extra powerful as a result. Some may read this and wonder what on earth I'm going on and on about. But those who get it, get it exactly.

It's well-drawn and succinct and showcases both the necessary perseverance of someone who very quickly went from being safe to nearly dying out in the wilderness of the northernmost part of the world because he first lost track of the snowmobile tracks and then the engine quit.

    This was a very short comic about how Serapio Ittusardjuat used traditional skills and knowledge he learned to stay alive. This is a first person account of how he spent four nights on the ice after his snowmobile broke down. This was extremely short, but it was interesting. The artwork was good and I learned a few things about surviving in cold temperatures. I do wish that it had been longer or tought more traditional skills that are used to survive. *ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest rev This was a very short comic about how Serapio Ittusardjuat used traditional skills and knowledge he learned to stay alive.

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review . I’m fascinated with Nunavut and the North West Territories and hoping to visit both over the next coupl,e of years , so I was really excited about this book. This is a quick read, with pretty cool graphics, but the story is lacking a bit. I was expecting a bit more depth to the story and more information on survival skills

    Thank you NetGalley for the Arch This is a very short graphic novel exploring the survival of a man on the artic ice for four nights. I was thinking it would go more in-depth of what happen but there really isn't much to the story. Something very easy for younger kids to understand and get through. The art is nice and writing simple so children of any age would be able to understand what is happening. I would have liked for it to just be longer.

    I wish there had been a bit more plot here, I loved the premise but it was so so short! I do think the intended age group would enjoy the story (kids from outside cultures could use some context ahead of time). As a kid I was obsessed with wilderness survival stories, and probably would have loved reading about the wisdom and strategies Serapio used to survive. I was provided an advance reader copy via Netgalley, for media consideration.

    This book came across my work desk. It was labeled as an adult book but the adult department thought it would be better as a children's book. I think it falls somewhere in the middle. I did enjoy it and loved the survival skills. But I would have liked to hear more about how he passed the time sitting on the snowmobile. I did like the illustrations though. I am still not sure in what area to shelve the book but will figure it out.

    While the story itself is short, it has some good lessons in it about learning from the past and overcoming challenges. The illustrations are simple, but they elevate the isolation of the story. Overall, this book would be useful in provoking discussions about survival, facing obstacles, and other tough topics. Thank you to NetGalley for the advance digital copy of this book.
