About The Lake Where Loon Lives: There's a lake. With a loon. Two chicks. Sounds peaceful, right? Guess again!


The Lake Where Loon Lives starts quietly, but the cumulative story builds, one line at a time, to a wacky and wonderful and splashy crescendo, as the loons are joined by a playful fly, a slippery fish, and a curious boy on the dock.


Brenda Reeves Sturgis treats us to fanciful and evocative word play while Brooke Carlton's exuberant watercolors tell the story behind the story.  Mama Loon rolls her eyes and tolerates the antics that take place on the lake until, at the end, she snuggles with her chicks who are ready for sleep, just as the readers of this wonderful picture book will be!


About the Author: Brenda Reeves Sturgis is a Maine author who began her writing journey in 2004. She is the author of 10 Turkeys in the Road and No Fun in the Sun for Santa. She and her husband Gary live on a lovely little lake where she listens to loons wail and watches an occasional moose meander across her back yard. She has four children and five grandchildren.
