There's a lake. With a loon. Two chicks. Sounds peaceful, right? Guess again!Read more...
The Lake Where Loon Lives starts quietly, but the cumulative story builds, one line at a time, to a wacky and wonderful and splashy crescendo, as the loons are joined by a playful fly, a slippery fish, and a curious boy on the dock.
Brenda Reeves Sturgis treats us to fanciful and evocative word play while Brooke Carlton's exuberant watercolors tell the story behind the story. Mama Loon rolls her eyes and tolerates the antics that take place on the lake until, at the end, she snuggles with her chicks who are ready for sleep, just as the readers of this wonderful picture book will be!
