Beautiful life like illustrations of coyotes. The story is about a pack of coyotes and how they hunt. A great picture book with coyote facts at the end of the book.

Interesting point of view that is omniscient, but 'you' are addressed directly in the book. Like the thought of not wanting other animals to die, but the coyote's family to eat too. Would have an interesting discussion with students on this matter.

Written in 2nd person with realistic illistations there are lots of great adjectives, and gives great information on coyotes in a really intriguing way. There is a focus on nature and the circle of life that is really useful for understanding it's not just "the turkey dies" but "coyote's family will eat". The book ends with interesting facts about Coyotes.

Mother coyote slinks through the night looking for food to bring back to her family. After a failed attempt at catching a mouse, geese, and a rabbit, coyote finally catches a turkey to bring back to her family. With full bellies, the coyotes sleep as the sun rises.

By far, the most stunning illustrations of any picture book I've ever seen, this book captures the nightly wanderings of a coyote as it slips through the night. This book teaches readers about coyotes hunting in suburban neighborhoods at night. It also contains sources and websites for further reading about coyotes and facts about coyotes at the end of the book.

A howl in the night.

A watchful eye in the darkness.

A flutter of movement among the trees.


In the dark of the night, a mother coyote stalks prey to feed her hungry pups. Her hunt takes her through a suburban town, where she encounters a mouse, a rabbit, a flock of angry geese, and finally an unsuspecting turkey on the library lawn.


Perhaps Coyote's family won't go hungry today.

This title has Common Core connections.
