    1. Concise view of loons and the role they play in both our ecological and cultural landscape. Very readable and recommended for early adult to adult readers. The book goes into some detail both in the main story and appendices about ongoing threats to loon survival. Emphasis is on the common loon.

    2. Dunning takes the reader through the yearly cycle of the loon, along with a brief history of the species, and provides lovely illustrations along the way. Her passion for the loon comes through in her writing, which is extremely well done.

    5. This is a beautifully written and illustrated book that was a pleasure to read. Packed with information about loons presented in a relaxed, easy to read prose. I will check this book out from the library again.
