One active day in the life of an endearing critter. Rounds describes the habitat and habits of that furry pond-dweller. Readers learn a bit about how and why dams are made, how the beaver eats bark by holding a branch in his paws and gnawing it "like a man eating corn off the cob," etc. Color illustrations, paired with black-and-white sketches, rely on playful draftsmanship for a sense of movement and flow; the color has a textured effect, as if rendered in crayons or pastels, and is bounded by heavy outlines. In an afterword, Rounds punctures some common myths about beavers Anotably that, contrary to the term "working like beavers," these critters rarely "hustle," but rather bite off just a little at a time, as it were, leaving plenty of room for naps and noshing.
