Super Book: Yak and Gnu

Yak and Gnu 
By Juliette MacIver
 Illustrated by Cat Chapman
Candlewick, 2015. Picture Book

Yak in his kayak and Gnu in her canoe think they are the only animals that can “float in a boat or sail in the sea.” As they are floating down the river they come across more and more animals that are on rafts, sail boats, and even a catamaran. With the river full of other animals and their watercrafts are Yak and Gnu still special?

 The illustrations gain humor as more and more animals appear. The characters’ faces are lively, silly and ooze personality. The story reaffirms that everyone is special even if others may be doing something similar.
