Description

From world-renowned author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, a story about three brothers who set off in search of wild animals in a changing climate.

This gentle adventure story about the effects of climate change ends on a hopeful note.

Finn and his younger brothers, Leo and Ooley, love reading stories about animals living in forests, on mountains or in the arctic.

“When I grow up,” says Finn, “I want to be an explorer and travel around the world. I want to see wild animals and strange birds.”“Why wait?” asks Leo.

And so, the next morning, they wake up early and set out on a snowy expedition to search for wild animals. In their grandfather’s time, the forest was full of animals — but today the forest is quiet. Where have the animals gone?

Editorial Reviews

There are no direct answers here about what the next steps in mitigating climate change can be, but the story offers a timely, gentle introduction to an increasingly complex and, for this generation, very concrete challenge.

 

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Gentle, humorous, and fun.

 


Each page spread is delightfully illustrated with Gay's signature mixed-media compositions of soft hues and bright details that draw the eye to moments in the brothers’ trek through the serene setting in search of wild animals.

 

— School Library Journal

[A] simple, optimistic story that is beautifully illustrated. … Readers young and old will love the hope-filled, wordless final double-page spread.
