The Three Brothers

A picture book by Marie-Louise Gay.

Marie-Louise Gay

From world-renowned author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, a story about three brothers who set off in search of wild animals in a changing climate.

This gentle adventure story about the effects of climate change ends on a hopeful note.

Finn and his younger brothers, Leo and Ooley, love reading stories about animals living in forests, on mountains or in the arctic.

"When I grow up," says Finn, "I want to be an explorer and travel around the world. I want to see wild animals and strange birds.""Why wait?" asks Leo.

And so, the next morning, they wake up early and set out on a snowy expedition to search for wild animals. In their grandfather's time, the forest was full of animals — but today the forest is quiet. Where have the animals gone? (From Groundwood Books)
