About this item

Deep in the wild winter wood, two hungry ravens fly in search of their next meal. A pack of wolves is on the hunt, too. Food is scarce, but if they team up, the ravens and wolves just might be able to help each other.Based on the real symbiotic relationship between ravens and wolves, The Wolf-Birds shows how ravens scout for potential prey for wolves. Once they find an animal, the ravens circle it and call out to alert the wolves. When wolves make a kill, ravens will feast alongside or after the wolf pack. Because of this phenomenon, ravens have been dubbed wolf-birds.” An informational author’s note at the back of the book explains more about this phenomenon.The book takes an honest, direct view of survival in the wild, but it focuses on cooperation and highlights the fact that one animal’s life helps many others live. Acrylic paint illustrations give the book a natural, multidimensional feel that completes this portrait of symbiosis.
