Math, science, sports, and games come together to delight young readers in a fanciful look at what would happen if kids played games with animals.
Would they win a pie-eating contest with a hippo, a wrestling match with an anaconda, or a game of tag with a porcupine? Win or lose, the competitions are hilarious as twelve different animals display their amazing natural abilities.
A nonfiction section of ‘Fun Facts and Fascinating Feats’ complements the fast-paced storyline.
“Absolutely fascinating.” — Kirkus
An owl swoops down to lay her egg in a coal yard–a dangerous spot for a fragile egg! Rescued by Walter, a bird expert with a big heart and warm shirt pocket, the egg miraculously hatches and is aptly named Coal.
Thus begins the tender story of rescue, rehabilitation, and most of all, friendship. Watercolor illustrations styled in soft realism capture the connections between Coal and the people whose lives he touches.
In addition to the story, there are pages of science information, literacy connections, and STEM activities.
“This delightfully told true story will go in the owl section of my library. A story I won’t forget.” — Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon
