    More Life in the Wild from Canadian Oldland (Up the Creek, 2013, etc.).A bear, a moose and a beaver are friends, and they love adventure. One day, they decide to climb a nearby mountain. They trek across the countryside and, while having a snack at the base of the mountain, decide to make the trip up the slope a race. The moose's long legs give him an advantage; he pulls ahead of his friends. Then a boulder comes down the cliffside path. In escaping the boulder, the moose falls over the edge and is left hanging from a tree limb. The bear tries to rescue his buddy, but he falls too. The beaver's quick thinking saves everyone. The three friends take the rest of the trip at a slower pace; and that is when they actually begin to enjoy their journey. Oldland's digitally painted, woodcut-style illustrations are as deadpan-charming as ever, and storytime audiences won't find this as predictable as those who present it to them will. The friends' competitiveness plays out believably enough, and the characters' short exclamations in the illustrations will elicit a giggle or two (and participation in subsequent readings). Another fine lesson couched in a tale that never becomes didactic. (Picture book. 3-9)

    PreS-Gr 2-Oldland's latest tale starring Bear, Moose, and Beaver is about adventure, competiton, and friendship. Each animal mimics the other as they attempt to climb to the top of the mountain. During the story, Beaver decides that it's time to up the ante and declares, "the race is on!" Unfortunately for Moose, as he rounds a bend on the side of the mountain, a boulder comes toward him. He attempts to lunge out of the way, only to fall off a cliff. Bear hears Moose's cries of distress and attempts to help, only to find himself in trouble as well. Shortly after, Beaver hears his friends in need and comes to the rescue, After returning to safety, they realize that competition is not always best. Subsequently, while exploring together they discover that they enjoy the journey even more. As with many of Oldland's picture books, friendship and teamwork play an important role. Young readers will laugh at the antics of a little red bird as he mirror the actions of the other animals. With simple text and muted, neutral colored folk art-like illustrations done on plain white paper makes this an easy read that flows nicely. VERDICT Probably best for one-on-one sharing, this simple story is a charmer.-Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY
