"The loon is the perfect Canadian symbol: its range is Canada; its call is the mark of the wilderness; its fate in dying forests and lakes is our fault. Paul Leet Aird's fables — not only of loons, but also of wolves and trees and lakes and squirrels — are beautifully complimented by Thoreau MacDonald's evocative drawings."
— The Globe and Mail
"Aird's tales aim to illustrate ecological truths. They accomplish this while unfolding with a kind of pleasing logic and inevitability reminiscent of traditional fables."
