Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
The story of why Mason the Beaver has to find a new place to live is the fourth of a series of stories built around the seasons. In this summertime tale, the wise old Solomon Raven advises Mason that the humans who destroyed the dam the beaver was building are likely to keep on doing so therefore it is best for him to move his family. Beaver retreats farther into the wilderness and is happy enough, and the human families appreciate the natural setting of their newly built homes. The message that humans and wildlife have to find a balance is good but the story settles for a fairly easy solution that suggests that it is always the humans who will make the decisions and the animals who will have to compromise. Mammaerts' illustrations are halfway between representative and cartoon; it is interesting to see that the pictures focus much more on the creatures and their environment than the humans.
