It took two special people to create this very special book: Jonathan London, who treasures our natural world and wants us to learn to live with it, and Barbara Firth, who came from England to a Vermont sheep farm and gives us the dramatic illustrations of the dark trees at the edge of the forest contrasting against the white snow of the farm. This is a story of a young boy who spies a coyote one snowy day along the fence line of his farm. Coyotes can be trouble for lambs. In the spring a lamb is lost, and father takes his gun and sets out after the coyotes in the area. The young boy goes along with him and is there to see the wonder of the coyote parents and their new offspring. It's a family just like his. How to solve the problem?
