Meet Elmer, an ordinary beaver. He may not be as mighty as a lion or as dangerous as a shark. He may be squat and brown. Butnever underestimate a beaver.
I can almost hear you saying, “But aren’t beavers just lumpy rodents with buck teeth and funny flat tails?”
Yes, they are! And believe it or not, those buck teeth and funny flat tails are just a few of the things that make beavers extraordinary.
Humorous and engaging,Beaversis the first book in the new highly illustrated nonfiction Superpower Field Guide series, inspiring readers to laugh, think, and view the world around them with new eyes.

Rachel Poliquin has a PhD in the history of science and has written about subjects including taxidermy, heroic sled dogs, and unruly beavers. Visitrachelpoliquin.com.
