Little Fox - The

An Alaskan Adventure

by Papish, Ram



Follow the adventures of an arctic fox on an island in the Bering Sea.

When the ice he is sleeping on breaks up and floats away, Little Fox is accidentally transported to an island. As he explores his new home, he meets seabirds and fur seals and learns about their lives. Written and illustrated by a field biologist with years of experience in Alaska, The Little Fox introduces young readers to the animals of the Bering Sea— the sounds they make, their sometimes unusual appearance, and how they survive the short, intense arctic summer.

Ram Papish graduated from the University of Oregon in 1995 with a degree in art and biology and has worked as a field biologist all over the Western Hemisphere. He has studied nesting seabirds on several remote islands in Alaska and draws upon his experiences as a biologist and birder to produce beautiful and accurate wildlife paintings.
