Narrated by Aven Shore
The story revolves around a lake. Part of the time, we observe the daily kid-adventures of Wes and Ginny who spend the summer canoeing. The other part, we see the lives of the loon family of Owala and Yudal and their chicks.
- I’m used to a very different type of book, but this one was okay as a change of pace.
- Much of the story felt like it lacked a conflict, but that got sorted by the end.
- Would probably mean more if you lived near a lake or got to visit a summer house near a lake.
- Seems high on details about the inner workings of loon lives, so I guess it could be considered educational too.
- The performance worked well.
- Not really feeling the cover or the title. I get that it’s about loons, but if I just saw the cover, I’d think “boring nature thingy” not fiction anything. Yes, I’m judging the book based on cover. People do it all the time. You see shirtless dude, you think trashy romance. You see photo of an actual loon, the brain says book equivalent of a nature documentary. The title sounds documentary-esque too.
Kid-safe story. The awkward tagline sort of spells things out. (It’s about a girl, a loon family, and their lives which revolve around the lake.)
