4.0 étoiles sur 5Marsh Animals Preparing for a Hurricane23 juin 2013

The Moon of the Deer is the September moon in Jean Craighead George's Thirteen Moons series, and title character is a young male white-tailed deer who lives in Mamacoke Marsh on the shores of Connecticut. The 43-page story, written for children in the middle grades, tells about the deer's experiences trying to find safety from a hurricane without invading the land of a large and very territorial buck. Along with him, the reader meets the other animals and birds of the marsh and sees how they are preparing for the extremely threatening weather. All the books in the series are illustrated with full-page colored paintings, usually spectacular. In this book, however, most of the pictures have dark and muddy tones due to the hurricane, and they are not particularly pleasing to look at. I realize they are realistic, but the white-tailed deer is such a beautiful animal and much of his habitat is so lovely that I expected more from the illustrations. But regardless of the nature of the art work, the story is good and it will help children to learn about the marsh and its inhabitants. Along with the other books in the series, it should not be missed.
