On Sale! Loon Chase shares the moment of wonder when a young boy’s peaceful canoe ride turns frantic as he discovers that his dog still has powerful instincts similar to animals in the wild. It is also about the surprising outcome of the encounter between the dog and a loon protecting chicks: the bigger animal doesn’t necessarily prevail. The superb pastel illustrations evoke feelings of being on the lake. The Creative Mind section has teaching trivia, crafts and games related to loons, their migration patterns and efforts to protect this species.
