Igvillu said to herself, "When I grow up, I am going to be a St. Bernard." She dreamed about running in the deep, pure-white snows of the Alps and rescuing skiers. She dreamed of running, running so fast, chasing wolves with sleek Irish wolfhounds. She dreamed of hunting with dingoes in Australia. She dreamed of splashing in clear waters fetching ducks with golden retrievers. But most of the time she dreamed about pulling huge, heavy sleds with big huskies, way up north. A little dog dreams big. Igvillu is a little dog with big dreams. One of her favorite dreams is of becoming a sled dog. When Igvillu is adopted from her kennel by an Inuit storyteller and moves to northern Canada, she comes face-to-face with real sled dogs. Igvillu loves living in the North, chasing siksiks and dreaming about her future. She's a dog who believes anything is possible!
