A Loon Alone Reviews
Beautifully, realistically painted images of a day in a loon chick's life, but I have some quibbles with a few details: in our area, the loons go to the Penobscot River in winter, and some are older than three months, and the blueberries look plastic, and the full page layout when the moose snorts at the raccoon seems a bit out of proportion. Overall, a great introduction to loon chicks' threats and ways it protects itself.
Since I have an obvious bias, let me just say that this is the story of the adventures of a loon chick separated from its mother; it's told realistically with no anthropomorphizing, and features an epilogue with facts about loons.
