Synopsis

Loon Baby by Molly Beth Griffin, Anne Hunter

Atop the rippling waves--the breeze ruffling his fluff--Loon Baby waits, alone, and wonders: Will his mother ever come back? With sensitivity and a spare prose, first-time author Molly Beth Griffin navigates the quiet panic that Loon Baby experiences in the absence of Mama. Anne Hunter's soft cross-hatched and watercolor paintings shape a serene lake-scape with varied scenes that amplify and illuminate the emotion this book captures.

Reviews

This lovely picture book addresses a child's fear of abandonment and offers the reassurance of a mother's love. -- Booklist Guaranteed to hit the mark with anyone who's ever felt lost and alone. -- Kirkus Reviews While understated, the story has a sturdy quality that should stand up to repeated read-alouds. -- Publishers Weekly
