Take a walk in the woods with Kate and her dad. You’ll find out why the Pacific rain forest is called the salmon forest and how the salmon and the trees need each other. You’ll also meet fat slugs and squawking gulls and a bear that is hungry for some fish. And you’ll get to know Brett and his family as they fish for salmon, clean it, cook it, and share a tasty meal with Kate and her dad.? Where did this story come from? In this book I’m part of a team. David Suzuki supplied the fascinating science; Sheena Lott painted the lovely watercolours (my favourite is the underwater seal); and I helped write the story.

An especially beautiful book as well as an interesting one
A gem of a bedtime story or for classroom use.
The scientific expertise of David Suzuki, the storytelling gifts of Sarah Ellis and Sheena Lott's talents as an artist have been combined in a most satisfying way in this excellent book about the life cycle of the Pacific salmon
