Description

Join a pack of woolly mammoths as they trek south for the winter, braving fierce storms, deadly predators, and raging rivers while making their slow journey across the gorgeous unspoiled lands of this continent until finally they reach their goal.

With the same jouncy and joyous rhythms of her youngest picture book texts, Lisa Wheeler introduces readers to one of the most awesome beasts to ever walk the earth: the massive, hairy--legendary--wonderful woolly mammoth!

This factually based book includes an author's note.

*"Young audiences will be riveted by this compelling introduction, and rightly tempted to echo the awed refrain: 'Big and bulky, / huge and hulky, / wide and woolly mammoths!'"
