About the Author
Toni Yuly is the author of many books for children, including Early Bird, which won the ALA Notable and Texas 2x2, and Thank You, Bees, which won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award. She studied painting at the University of Washington, where she worked with the great American painter Jacob Lawrence, and worked for many years as a librarian in the King County Library System. She lives in Bremerton, Washington, where she often drives to the shore to watch the brown pelicans.
* "Repetitive, rhyming, call-and-response-style text makes this one a sure bet for the younger set...torn-paper, ink, and digital-media artwork is the standout here....Yuly imbues her subject with verve and energy; readers will be just as eager to see the results of the pelican's flight as the birds waiting back home in the nest."

--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Displays the pelican's power and balletic grace...the pelican's natural behavior supplies all the visual drama the story needs." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Yuly delivers plenty of page-turning visual drama...Artfully placed text mimics the pelicans' path as they fly, dive, "SPLASH!," and scoop, enhancing the book's visual delight and the appeal of decoding words and images as readers follow the pelicans from page to page."
--Horn Book
"The sunnily optimistic picture book The Pelican Can! uses bold graphics to capture the vibrant world of a can-do bird."--Parade Magazine, "The 25 Best New Book Releases This Week"
