Acclaimed Alaskan duo Debbie S. Miller and Jon Van Zyle bring the beautiful and mysterious arctic lands to life in this smart, stunning picture book.

Imagine a land where the sun rises at 1:58 a.m. in the summer and shines for less than four hours on a winter's day. The animals in the wilderness near Fairbanks, Alaska, witness some of the world's greatest temperature extremes and light variations ever year. At an average low of -16 degrees Fahrenheit, the winters may be unpleasantly frigid, but the light shows are always glorious!

This book is beautifully written. The text is rich in description and the pictures match. I use this book in my 4-6 grade classroom, and the students respond well. I recommend this book very highly... I'm so glad that I came across it!

This was a richly illustrated and written book, worthy reading to understand the differences of living in the Northern latitudes compared to the contiguous 48 states.
