The ink and watercolour illustrations in this book reflect the life cycle of a salmon from the salmon’s point of view looking up from underwater. Silhouette images provide a clue to the seasons and to the predators the salmon encounters throughout its life. The story reminds us how the salmon demonstrates great determination and strength in its long journey from the stream where life begins,
to the ocean, and back to its natal stream.
Carol ends the story with a step-by-step instructional guide to create your own ink and watercolour image.
