About the Author
Read an Excerpt
F is for Fennec. The Fennec is a small fox. It lives in the deserts of northern Africa and Arabia. The Fennec spends the hot day in its underground den where it is cooler. The soles of its feet are covered with hair so it can walk on the hot sand.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was struck by the humor and the wonderful illustrations in this book. I use it in the classroom to teach about the desert and the children are fascinated with the animals and insects. It's so refreshing to find such mature and beautiful paintings in a childrens book. It seems 98 percent of them have oversimplified cartoony drawings. My children are inspired by the colorful art. I highly recommend this book.
