Canadian Children’s Book Centre – Best Books of Fall 2014
When an osprey nest atop an electrical pole catches fire, the whole town of Waterton loses power. Cricket, a park ranger’s daughter, is there at the scene, where she finds three abandoned baby ospreys. Caring for the chicks proves to be challenging for Cricket. The birds are noisy, hungry, and very picky eaters. But when she discovers that the power company is building a new anti-nesting device on the power pole, Cricket has an even bigger problem. How will she reunite the baby birds with their parents without a place for them to build a nest?
