“Graceful, well-constructed rhymes (“Hello humpback/ ocean blue/ chatty raven/ mountain view”) pair with First Nations artist Vickers’s crisp, luminous scenes, with animals drawn in the bold, abstracted style of the region’s indigenous artists. ...It’s a gorgeous glimpse of the distinctive landscapes and creatures of the Northwest, and it will enchant residents and nonlocals alike.”
