Raven and River leads young readers on a fantastical journey with a raven across the icy Alaska landscape on the verge of spring. Along the way, the raven’s sonorous cry wakes a cast of sleeping woodland creatures, including a bear, a beaver, a hare, and a squirrel—all of whom join him in imploring the still-frozen river to melt and thereby initiate the change of seasons. Packed with information and featuring vibrant full-color illustrations by Jon Van Zyle, Raven and River brings to life these two important harbingers of Alaska’s spring.

Nancy White Carlstrom is based in Seattle and has written more than sixty books for children.

Jon Van Zyle is recognized throughout the U.S. for his striking paintings of Alaska’s wildlife and landscape. He lives near Eagle River, Alaska.
