Toronto Sun lifestyle editor, Rita Demontis writes about the true life story behind Larry the loon by Judith McMurray and the artists behind it. A touching story how an injured loon captured the hearts of a family. This is a must read for adults and children alike. A story about compassion and respect for wildlife on our Canadian lakes.
