The lovable mascots, and their sidekick, of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games!
The story of the 2010 Winter Olympics mascots Miga, Quatchi, Sumi and their sidekick Mukmuk unfolds on the magical landscape of Canada's West Coast.
Inspired by the legends of the Pacific Northwest First Nations, Miga is part orca and part Kermode bear. This snowboarding sea bear's outgoing nature and high energy always lead her to adventure. A shy and gentle giant, Quatchi is a sasquatch, a legendary creature in Aboriginal myth. Devoted to hockey, Quatchi dreams of becoming a famous goalie. Sumi's name is derived from the Salish word Sumesh, meaning "guardian spirit." He wears the hat of an orca, flies with the wings of the thunderbird and runs on the legs of the black bear, and he is passionate about the environment and Paralympic sports. And lovable Mukmuk, a furry little marmot, loves cheering on his friends during games and races.
Written in both English and French and featuring modern illustration and design, this delightful tale is a perfect introduction to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
