Up the Creek by Nicholas Oldland - ESSENTIAL

Oldland, Nicholas  Up the Creek Kids Can Press, 2013.  $16.95  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

Moose, Bear and Beaver are best friends and they often disagree, so when they decide to go for a canoe trip together it turns into a big adventure.  They have to learn to get along to survive and they each end up using their strengths to get them safely down the river.  In the end they decide to walk back up the river instead of using the canoe.  

This is a humorous look at the need to work together.  These three animals are adorable illustrations and when they have trouble on the river the pictures make you laugh.  This is my favorite kind of picture book-humor, short text with a good moral and clean illustrations.  Great addition to any library.  

EL (K-3)-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
