“Beautiful illustrations compliment a wonderful & absorbing nature story. Very educational. Something for child & adult alike. Much more than I expected in a children’s book. I leave Clark the Mountain Beaver out on the table for all to see- the cover art draws immediate attention. I’ve noticed the kids come back to wander through the pages time & again. The story reveals the ecology of Clark’s world so you are exposed to different levels of science embedded in the narrative. You come away entranced not only with Clark’s odyssey & friends but a deeper appreciation of Clark’s environment. Lot’s of supporting American history & interesting facts supplement the story. Very pleased. I hope there is a sequel soon.” – Thomas H.

“I received your book this week. It is wonderful! My great niece and nephew will love it! It is a lovely book with a fantastic story. We were laughing that my older sister, who is a huge Lewis and Clark fan/historian will want a copy!” – Joyce M., IL

“Just got my copy of “Clark the Mountain Beaver and His Big Adventure” by local author Karen B. Shea. With a strong theme of self worth, the story shows how Clark meets and learns from many new friends including Lewis, an American beaver. Ahh Lewis and Clark. Shea adds after the story a couple pages about the explorers Lewis and Clark and their relationship to the American beaver. The illustrations enhance the text with strong, deep color and fine markings of the animals.” – Joyce W., WA

“A wonderful children’s book that has a positive, uplifting message even adults will appreciate! Kindness, acceptance, overcoming one’s fears, adventure, self discovery and respect for nature and the world around us are just some of the lessons that Clark the Mountain Beaver has to offer. A delightful little story with beautiful illustrations that will entertain little children (and adults) for years to come. It is so refreshing that no villainous, evil or unkind characters are used in the story to convey lifes’ most important lessons. A positive view of life as it should be. Well done Karen. Can’t wait for Clark’s next adventure!!!” – Patricia Z., IL

“Karen, thank you for the book! We thoroughly enjoyed reading it to Charlie. Clark the Mountain Beaver is a wonderful exploration of the creatures found in the Pacific Northwest in our own backyard. My 3-year old not only sat through chapter after chapter, he asked questions about the cirtters introduced and was engaged. There are multiple life lessons strewn throughout the story such as friendship, trying new things, how we are different and celebrating your strengths. Clark the Mountain Beaver is the perfect addition to our favorite book rotation. In fact, Charlie brought it to bed and slept with it under his pillow. That’s where the day’s most prized possessions lay!” – Erin & Charlie H., WA
