Foxes on the Ridge
LEON E. PAVLICK and ANN M. PAVLICK
On a ridge in southeastern Manitoba, a litter of pups marks the beginning of a new life cycle for the species. The story that follows is told by one of the pups as if it were a human. From “the world outside the den being scary but wonderful” to “summer breezes – with their nose messages”, the story will please the senses and stir the emotions.
Throughout the book, illustrations by the renowned nature artist Lissa Calvert complement the story most effectively. The overall result is a delightful, educational experience. It ends appropriately with renewal; the beginning of the next life cycle.
