Raven Squawk, Orca Squeak

A picture book by Roy Henry Vickers and Robert "Lucky" Budd. 

Roy Henry Vickers & Robert "Lucky" Budd 

With bright and bold illustrations by celebrated Indigenous artist Roy Henry Vickers, this sturdy board book introduces iconic sounds of the West Coast and supports the language development of babies and toddlers.

From the roar of the sea lions, to the creak and rustle of cedar branches in the wind, to the sacred drumming of a potlatch and the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, the rhythmic text, vibrant illustrations and glossy tactile finish of Raven Squawk, Orca Squeak will delight the very youngest readers.
