What’s the ruckus?
What’s that sound?
Walrus calls and songs astound—
Honk, honkkkk! HOOO, HOOOOT!
Diving, feasting, twirling—catch a glimpse of the joy found in a walrus’s icy home. Follow as it plays hide-and-seek with a friend, lounges on an ice floe, and demonstrates an impressive repertoire of sounds. Janet Lawler celebrates the many wonders of being a walrus in a story that’s brought to life through Timothy Basil Ering’s exuberant artwork. Readers curious to learn more will find a glossary at the end, along with some cool walrus facts: Did you know that a walrus can eat more than four thousand clams in a feeding frenzy—and that some walruses weigh more than a car?
From the Publisher
From the illustrator of the beloved Kate DiCamillo's The Tale of Despereaux!
"Forgiveness, light, love, and soup. These essential ingredients combine into a tale that is as soul stirring as it is delicious."
— Booklist (starred review)
"The melodramatic voice of the narrator glides through DiCamillo's entirely pleasing tale . . . And so unwinds a tale with twists and turns, full of forbidden soup and ladles, rats lusting for mouse blood, a servant who wishes to be a princess, a knight in shining—or at least furry—armor, and all the ingredients of an old-fashioned drama."

—School Library Journal (starred review)
Appended with walrus facts that reference specific spreads, this will please a range of audiences, from squirmy toddlers enticed by the rhymes to would-be marine biologists.
Lawler keeps the tone light and fun while imparting a great deal of information. . . . Ering’s brilliant, luminous, lifelike paintings capture their subject close-up and in great detail. . . will entrance little readers and their grown-ups.
[Lawler’s] clever, vivid poetry and Ering’s exuberant, oversize illustrations in charcoal and acrylic paint bring the walrus to vivid life.
—The Buffalo News
With rhyming text, Lawler provides an engaging and educational peek into the life of a walrus.
The chunky, bewhiskered walrus might not sound like the most debonair of sea creatures, but Janet Lawler’s cheerful verses do a great job capturing its charisma. . . . With Timothy Basil Ering’s expressive close-up illustrations and a collection of walrus facts at the end, Lawler’s picture book is an appealing and poetic ode to the ‘solid, massive’ creature.
