Description

En cuanto el sol empieza a ponerse, los animales del ártico se preparan para el oscuro y frío invierno. Tuktuk, el lemino, está casi listo para pasar la larga noche invernal—todo lo que él necesita es pelaje caliente para revestir su nido. Cuando una kamik afelpada resbala fuera del trineo de un conductor Inuit, ¡TukTuk está de suerte! Pero, mientras la arrastra hacia su hogar, Putak el oso polar, Aput la zorra del ártico, y y Masak la caribú, observan el premio de este pequeño lemino y se lo quieren quitar. Tuktuk piensa rapido, pero ¿podrá él ser más inteligente que los otros animales y convencerlos que una kamik afelpada no es buena para nigún animal que sea más grande que un lemino?
