From Paws IV, Alaska's favorite line of children's books, comes this delightful tale about the willow ptarmigan, Alaska's state bird. Illustrator Shannon Cartwright once again brings to the page and into kids' hearts a delightful tale about Alaska wildlife. In this new Paws IV book, a young girl plays hide-and-seek with a friendly ptarmigan on the Alaska Range. Season by season, the ptarmigan changes its plumage to blend with its surroundings, leaving the little girl wondering each time where it has disappeared to. Written in rhyming verse and filled with fascinating information about the ptarmigan, this charming book is ideal for reading aloud to young children.
