Where抯 Walrus?

by Stephen Savage

Published by Scholastic Press, 2011
32 pages
ISBN: trade 978𢠦39-700498

Ages 2-6

A wordless picture book stars a walrus who escapes from his small pool at the zoo and ventures into town, followed by a harried-looking zookeeper wielding a butterfly net. Walrus finds several venues into which he blends with ease梐 stone fountain, a lunch counter, a store window, and a chorus line, among others梬hile the zookeeper watches from the wings, always a beat too late to net his escapee. When Walrus performs a spectacular dive off the high board as an incognito member of the human dive team, the judges award him a perfect 10, the crowd goes wild with applause, and the zookeeper is struck with inspiration. The final page shows the walrus back at the zoo, happily executing a similar dive into his own newly constructed large pool, complete with diving board. Illustrations with a clean and simple style, created in Adobe Illustrator, bring a vintage feel to the humorous antics of a walrus searching for fulfillment.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
