  • Short Description

In this latest collection of beautifully illustrated, easy-to-read fables, Robert James Challenger continues to teach children practical, moral lessons about life in today's complicated world. Owl shows Grandson that a problem will only go away when each person involved becomes part of the solution. Little Mallard Duck finds out the hard way that things change over time, and that even when we think we are not ready, it may be time to move on. Steelhead Trout learns that instead of swimming away from those who are different, it is much better to respect their points of view and help them to understand our own.

All of Jim's books are perfect tools to teach children how to live in harmony with others and are widely used by parents and teachers to stimulate children to talk about their experiences. Conveying values of respect, cooperation and kindness, their wisdom and beauty will leave a lasting impression on readers young and old.

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Robert James (Jim) Challenger has spent his life absorbing the stories and imagery of the Pacific Northwest coast. Jim is an accomplished artist known for his original style that captures the shape and movement of wild creatures in their natural settings. His unique illustrations and beach-stone-and-glass carvings are prized by collectors around the world. In addition to being an artist, Jim is the author of six books for children inspired by oral storytelling traditions and local legends of the Pacific Northwest. Through his stories and designs, Jim reveals a magical world of birds, fish, and mammals who share lessons from nature about the art of living well. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

“An excellent resource. . . [has] several applications in the Grade 3 to 6 classroom, particularly in art classes to illustrate examples of the Northwest Haida art style and in science classes to complement a study of animals of the Northwest. Recommended.” —Lois Brymer, CM Magazine
