Spectacular, gorgeous, amazing, glorious illustrations. My only quibble is using the scariest looking one, a lynx hunting an ermine, as the cover illustration. I’d have gone with just about any of the other illustrations in the book for the cover.

This is a wonderful ecology book for children, with interesting information, fascinating details, and a plea for conservation, including a list of organizations in the front and an author’s note with map in the back of the book. The “sound effects” were rather interesting but might be challenging to read aloud accurately.

The illustration with the wolves might be my favorite but it's so difficult to choose.

Lisa Vegan Abigail, Yes, it has drama but I found it unfriendly on the cover, although I liked it within the book. I'd rather have had an overview illustration of some type, a wide angle view of the forest, etc.
