It's summertime, and as darkness falls there is a haunting sound from the lake -Ooh-hoo-oo, ooh-hoo-oo. It is a loon calling to its family across the water.
This lyrical story follows the life cycle of two loon chicks. Accompanying Susan Van Griek's poetic texts are Karen Reczuch's gorgeous illustrations. An afterword provides moew information on loons, including their amazing diving ability, the meanings of their calls, and the environmental threats that they face.
