“High on a hill just outside Jackson, Wyoming sits a wonderful museum that showcases the premier collection of wildlife art in the United States, the National Museum of Wildlife Art.  Lynn Friess wrote Carl to introduce and engage children to the wonders of wildlife art and this amazing facility and resource. A grandmother of ten, this is Lynn’s second children’s book. An avid art collector, she shares this delightful tale with you and her grandchildren.”  —http://www.mariposaranchpress.com/
