creators of Raven, Rabbit, Deer are back with another thoughtful tale of
a young boy and his grandfather taking a walk through the woods and all the creatures
and plants they encounter.

Walking as
"quiet as mice and rabbits and deer" they come upon fresh moose droppings and
set out to find the moose itself. They discover the branches where the moose
ate breakfast, greet a chipmunk and goose, and inspect rosehips and pussy
willows, but the moose is nowhere to be found. Finally, after accepting that
they will have to try again next time, the boy and his grandfather head home...
only to be met with a big surprise.

In Finding
, Governor General's Award-nominated author Sue Farrell Holler gives
us a glimpse into the wondrous world of nature through the eyes of a curious
child. Grandpa quietly encourages this curiosity while offering answers and
further lessons where he can. Illustrator Jennifer Faria draws us in with
gentle paintings that make us want to reach out and touch the scenery.

"Acrylic and colored pencil artwork by debut
illustrator Faria (Chippewas of Rama First Nation) startles with rich,
startling winter sunset hues...Holler's story gains from the interplay of
dimensions: the affectionate relationship between the boy and his grandfather,
the growing vocabulary they share, and their slow-paced appreciation of the
natural world."--Publishers
