Young readers will learn the basics about walruses here: adaptations, young, social groups, feeding, anatomy, range, predators, dangers to humans, and Inuit use of walruses for meat and ivory for their harpoons.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The endpapers, as well, use illustrations to full effect to convey information.” — Kid Lit North

“. . . [I]t’s the uncommon info, like which bulls can be a threat to boats and how walrus meat is prepared by the Inuit, that makes Herve Paniaq’s Walrus distinct.” — CanLit for Little Canadians

“. . . [M]akes a wonderful addition to library shelves, and should be there for those kids who love to learn about new and not always common animals.” — Sal’s Fiction Addiction
