The Wolf-Birds

Owlkids Books (Canada)
Picture Book by Willow Dawson
40 pages, Ages 5-8

In a story set deep in the wild winter wood, two hungry ravens fly in search of their next meal. A pack of wolves is on the hunt, too. Food is scarce, but, if they team up, the ravens and wolves just might be able to help each other.

"Layering beautiful illustrations and storytelling over scientifically accurate concepts, The Wolf-Birds draws readers to the poetry of predator, prey, and scavenger interactions. Dawson’s honest portrayal of ecological relationships effectively, and importantly, connects us to the raw beauty of our natural world." – Daniel Stahler, PhD, Wildlife Biologist, Yellowstone National Park
