Hungry Coyote

by Cheryl Blackford
Illustrated by Laurie Caple

Published by Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2015
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠪73519649

Ages 58

揇own at the lake, the ice groans and thumps Coyote slinks toward slick ice. Wary and watchful, he sneaks past the crowd. A lyrical text follows a city coyote through one year, with the search for food paramount across the seasons. In winter he pounces and misses a vole. In spring, 揅oyote hunts to feed his famished family. In summer, he makes off with picnickers fare for his growing pups. Autumn brings a flock of geese, and Coyote is able to snatch one. Autumn also brings the first signs of winter. Beautiful watercolor illustrations are the perfect backdrop for a lovely narrative that comes full circle. A brief note about city coyotes, and their close proximity to humans (referenced in both the narrative and illustrations throughout) is at volume抯 end.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
