Structured like verse, Gianferrari's crisp sentences are simultaneously graceful and matter-of-fact in their observations ("Coyote threads through rusty reeds"), and a closing section of "coyote facts" goes into greater detail about how and where the canines live.

Synopsis

A howl in the night.

A watchful eye in the darkness.

A flutter of movement among the trees.

Coyotes.

In the dark of the night, a mother coyote stalks prey to feed her hungry pups. Her hunt takes her through a suburban town, where she encounters a mouse, a rabbit, a flock of angry geese, and finally an unsuspecting turkey on the library lawn.

POUNCE!

Perhaps Coyote's family won't go hungry today.

This title has Common Core connections.

“Yip-yip-yip-yip!” indeed, for this sympathetic portrayal of a not-often-celebrated creature who shares our world.
