The Tangled Loon | Virginia Cassarino-Brown


On a warm summer evening, a young boy named Jason skips rocks across the surface of a lake in Maine. He sees his elderly neighbor, Mr. Brown hunched over the side of a boat trying to untangle fishing line that is wrapped around a loon. Jason soon realizes that Mr. Brown can’t free the bird on his own. Will he be able help his old neighbor save the tangled loon? This story, inspired by true events, poignantly demonstrates that the lives of humans and animals are interwoven and delicately balanced.
