The Tale of Pale Male: A True Story
by Jeanette Winter
Ideal for four to six-year-olds, this tale of Pale Male the red-tailed hawk, takes place several years after the events told in Marie Winn's adult book, Red-Tails in Love.
Winter's brief story recounts the hawk family's activities and what happened when their nest was removed. Her illustrations, done in pale pinks, lavenders, greens, and blues, emphasize the fanciful nature of the tale and slyly pokes fun at the evil humans responsible for the nest's destruction.
A happy ending will delight her young audience.
