Puffling Patrol

By Horn Book

As always, the Lewins combine their artistic and storytelling gifts, capturing the beauty of the landscape and the awkwardly amusing appeal of the birds. Ted Lewin’s large watercolors are gorgeous, particularly in their use of light, portraying everything from the vast rocky and mossy stretches of the landscape to the joy and excitement as children release their puffins. Betsy Lewin’s smaller sketches convey every humorous quirk of the birds.
