“who is caribou” is an enchanting children’s book written and illustrated by Daniel Victor Snaith. Description Daniel Victor Snaith is a Canadian illustrator, writer, and musician who have also played under the names Caribou, Manitoba and Daphni. The life of a young girl named Belle was filled with dreams of one day becoming a celebrated author, but when her father passes away she is left to live on her own with a new foster family. Belle is forced to help her niece, Flora, take care of the family dog, Cash, while she plans to leave town to travel with her sister to pursue her dream. When a storm catches the two sisters on the road and they are swept away helplessly to a strange town known as “Caribouland”, they are faced with dangers along their journey as well as new friendships that will transform their lives forever.

Mr. Victor takes the reader on a journey to several different places and brings them back home again, as beautiful as they were when they left. The humour that flows throughout the book also helps to make it much more appealing to adults.
