Looking for Loons, (Jennifer Lloyd auth., Kirsti Anne Wakelin illust., published by Simply Read Books) won’t be out until the fall, but was reviewed from the proofs in the Quill & Quire.
excerpt from the Q&Q, July/August 2007, page 68:

-Jessica Kelley, a youth librarian from Vancouver living in Fresno, California
