Learn about how these captivating creatures flop and plop and call and play their way in and out of the icy waters they call home.

What’s the ruckus?
What’s that sound?
Walrus calls and songs astound—
Honk, honkkkk! HOOO, HOOOOT!

Diving, feasting, twirling—catch a glimpse of the joy found in a walrus’s icy home. Follow as it plays hide-and-seek with a friend, lounges on an ice floe, and demonstrates an impressive repertoire of sounds. Janet Lawler celebrates the many wonders of being a walrus in a story that’s brought to life through Timothy Basil Ering’s exuberant artwork. Readers curious to learn more will find a glossary at the end, along with some cool walrus facts: Did you know that a walrus can eat more than four thousand clams in a feeding frenzy—and that some walruses weigh more than a car?

Walrus facts. Full-color illustrations done in charcoal and acrylic paint.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Walruses have never looked more adorable. Lawler's spare text and Ering's vibrant illustrations, rendered in charcoal and acrylic paint on paper, effortlessly introduce the lovable mammal. This picture book accessibly presents information on habitat, physical features, and diet; unfamiliar vocabulary is seamlessly worked in. The lyrical and rhythmic narrative will engage readers, and the spreads on walrus songs will invite kids to imitate with gusto. This would be a prime candidate for preschool story time; the full package is begging to be read aloud. Accompanied by walrus recordings, this would be such an enriching experience in any read-aloud setting. Back matter consists of detailed explanations of walrus behavior. VERDICT Purchase for story time and STEM shelves.-Nancy Call
