Tuktuk: un cuento sobre la tundra

Robin Currie (author), Phyllis Saroff (illustrator)

Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781628558838

En cuanto el sol empieza a ponerse, los animales del ártico se preparan para el oscuro y frío invierno. Tuktuk, el lemino, está casi listo para pasar la larga noche invernal—todo lo que él necesita es pelaje caliente para revestir su nido. Cuando una kamik afelpada resbala fuera del trineo de un conductor Inuit, ¡TukTuk está de suerte! Pero, mientras la arrastra hacia su hogar, Putak el oso polar, Aput la zorra del ártico, y y Masak la caribú, observan el premio de este pequeño lemino y se lo quieren quitar. Tuktuk piensa rapido, pero ¿podrá él ser más inteligente que los otros animales y convencerlos que una kamik afelpada no es buena para nigún animal que sea más grande que un lemino?

City Birds

Dean Norman (author) Dean Norman (illustrator)

Publisher: Star Bright Books ISBN: 9781595725349

City Birds is a witty, upbeat story about two falcon hatchlings named Stars and Stripes atop a skyscraper in Cleveland, Ohio. The two young birds are introduced to the life of a bird of prey in a big city. With their parents’ guidance, the young birds learn to catch pigeons (and not the “fowl” balls that come from the nearby baseball stadium), how to interact with humans (who are kind enough to feed the local pigeon “livestock”), and finally, how to fly, the final skill that will allow them to leave their concrete home to hunt for food and start their own homes and families. Told with tongue in cheek humor that will keep readers chuckling from cover to cover.
