Nuptse and Lhotse are back for another marvellous adventure! Welcome to the Canadian Rockies, a place where bears prowl around valleys and glacier blue lakes. When Mrs. Jasper, a very large grizzly bear, loses her twin cubs Yoho and Kootenay between Paradise Valley and The Valley of the Ten Peaks, she needs Nuptse and Lhotse to help her find them. In a land full of mountains that could be somewhere near Banff and Jasper National Parks, the cats and Mrs. Jasper will need to follow clues and their imagination to find out where these cubs have gone. As they make their way through this world-famous landscape, the cats will learn what makes the mountain lakes turquoise, what the fastest way to get down a couloir is, what not to do when you are in a canoe, how to cross an icefield, who belongs in these national parks and why bringing your most favourite thing on an adventure might just save the day.

Nuptse and Lhotse Go to the Rockies is a colourful, illustrated story for adventurers of all ages who dream of playing in high-up places.

Seamlessly incorporated into the text and illustrations are aspects of mountain geography and culture. This includes an explanation of the blue-green colour of the mountain lakes that is part of the cats’ stop in Lake Louise and homage to legendary mountain photographer Byron Harmon. These details make good entry points for further classroom learning and connect to a number of curriculum areas. The publisher, Rocky Mountain Books, is known for publications that celebrate mountain culture and Nuptse & Lhotse Go to the Rockies is an excellent addition to their growing catalogue for young readers. Highly recommended: 4 out of 4 stars.—Lauren Wheeler, Deakin Review of Children's Literature
