Owls and Loons

Zoe Burke, illus. by various artists. PomegranateKids, $10.95 (24p) ISBN 978-0-7649-7542-4
Images of owls and loons created by Inuit artists pair with an upbeat rhyme (“This Owl spreads its wings,/ while this Owl plays and sings”) in a book that showcases a variety of artistic styles. Some birds are drawn with an eye toward naturalistic detail, such as a yellow-eyed owl with delicately shaded feathers, while others feature extravagant and vividly colored plumage that bursts from their bodies in shapes that evoke foliage, teardrops, or the fan of a peacock’s tail. An engaging introduction to the diversity of Inuit art. Up to age 5. (Sept.)
