About Jerry Muskrat
Jerry Muskrat is a very laid back dude who likes to swim, surf, and take some rays in his deck chair beside the Smiling Pool.
He lives in a mud house built into the river bank. Friends with Ryder Rabbit and Jimmy Skunk, Jerry likes to play pranks, and to punk his neighbors down by the swimming hole.
He has an easy laugh and mellow attitude... just DON'T ever call him a rat!
Inspired by the works of groundbreaking environmentalist children's book writer Thornton Burgess, these stories, games, educational materials teach kids about the muskrats living in rivers, ponds, lakes and other wetland environments in a near-boreal region.
Join Jerry as he rows his way through the cities, towns and parks of the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence Seaway in his series "The Greatest Lakes – a Jerry Muskrat™ Adventure!"
Jerry has packed his bags, rendered a raft, and is travelling through the world's largest freshwater Lake System. Did you know the Great Lakes hold over half of the world's fresh water? They are the heart of Canada and America's population and industry. Jerry is going to meet the people, animals, and towns that make it happen, all while battling against The Invaders, animals intent on taking over the Great Lakes, led by the evil King Karp.
