Bobcat Prowling

Roaring Brook. Mar. 2022. 48p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9781626727861.
Gr 1-2–Action-packed illustrations capture the journey of a yearling bobcat searching for a new territory when he is sent out from his mother’s den. The quest for a new home leads the bobcat to encounter many other species, some prey, and others competitors, for food and space. The poetic language captures the details of the bobcat’s situation and the accompanying back matter and additional resources provide ample opportunities for young researchers interested in extending their learning. The text itself is not sufficient for research but is an engaging starting point. Ibatoulline’s watercolors are detailed and full of energy and emotion.
VERDICT A visually arresting introduction to the species that makes its home throughout North America.
