Ibatoulline's rich illustrations show the beauty of the night and the coyote's determined hunt for food for her family. Back matter includes further information on coyotes and a list of further information in books and websites.
This story is simple but beautifully captures an often-maligned animal hunting for her family. Older readers will be able to use the book as a starting point for discussion of urban wildlife while younger children will enjoy the evocative text and art.
Verdict: A must-have for your picture book section, whether or not you include informative picture books. A great book for nonfiction storytimes as well as class discussion and one-on-one reading.
