Ted and Betsy Lewin's illustrated account of their trip to an island off the coast of Iceland, where they chronicle the annual activities of The Puffling Patrol, local children who rescue and care for lost young puffins and facilitate their first flight out to sea.From the Inside Flap:
Every April, the Westman Islands off the coast of Iceland become home to hundreds of thousands of puffins, small black-and-white seabirds with colorful bills. They spend the summer on the rocky cliffs of the islands, caring for their newly hatched chicks. By the middle of August, it is time for the young puffins, called pufflings, to make their way to the sea. And that is when the children of The Puffling Patrol are called to action.
Ted and Betsy Lewin have journeyed to Heimaey, one of the Westman Islands, to experience The Puffling Patrol's endeavors firsthand. In the company of Erna, D ni, and their father, they drive through town at night, carefully searching for confused little birds that have glided down onto the streets instead of out to sea. Will the children find the pufflings before the birds encounter danger? Will the pufflings ever make it to the sea to spend their lives with other puffins in the North Atlantic Ocean?
The fascinating story of this unique annual rescue, combined with Ted Lewin's dramatic paintings and Betsy Lewin's lively field sketches, is sure to make Puffling Patrol a hit with animal lovers of all ages.
