About this title


A beautifully illustrated celebration of life and nature.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-4-Through the experiences of a young girl living with her parents and brother in the Alaskan wilderness, Wood explores a child's observations and dawning understanding of the food web. When the child sees a pike gobble up three ducklings, she is disturbed. Months later while ice fishing, she is happy to catch the ravenous fish, positively identified by the old fishing lures hanging from its mouth. Only when the pike is slit and eggs spill out does the protagonist learn that the fish was a mother. Confused and then thoughtful, she concludes, "-I suddenly realized that what had happened to the ducklings wasn't good or bad, wasn't happy or sad. It just was." She thinks of the chain of eaters of which she is a part. "And then I wasn't angry anymore, or even sad. I understood." Wood gives a powerful lesson in the simple language of a poet. Her text and Felix's beautiful watercolors make this an important book on a topic rarely tackled. Unfortunately, the CIP subject headings "Inuit" and "Eskimos" are misleading as there is nothing in the text that assigns ethnicity or cultural identity. This is a book for children who are grappling with the apparent cruelty of the natural world and as such it should be embraced as a worthy ecological offering.-Sue Sherif, Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Library, AK
