Sequel to Bear and the Oxbow Island Gan & Oxbow Island Gang: Lobster Graveyard

The winds howl and snow blocks the windows of Oxbow Island’s homes while Bear is staying with his grandmother after Christmas. When the island loses power, Bear and his friend Olivia have to help their neighbors stack firewood, shovel snow, and provide meals. But there is a mystery to solve, and a blizzard
won’t stop them. Who is killing the island’s crows?

The third book in an environmental mystery series for readers ages 8-11.

A remarkable cast and pleasantly snowy backdrop elevate this quiet mystery.
