A gorgeous and lyrical picture book: THE SECRET LIFE OF THE RED FOX

RED FOX COVER A rich reading experience awaits those who pick up this title.”— School Library Journal, starred review

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 2017 Calkins Creek, an imprint of Highlights, is pleased to announce the March publication of THE SECRET LIFE OF THE RED FOX, written by renowned science author Laurence Pringle and illustrated by Kate Garchinsky. This non-fiction picture book, perfectly suited to young animal lovers, invites readers on a yearlong journey with a red fox named Vixen.

Delightful descriptions draw the reader into Vixen’s daily routine, as she finds food, hunts, escapes threats, finds a mate, and raises her kits—until the day that she and her mate watch the kits head off to lead their own secret lives. Stunning, realistic artwork by debut illustrator Kate Garchinsky celebrate the beauty of these mysterious creatures, while readers learn important facts about the animal through an engaging and fascinating story.

Children will be captivated by the intimate scenes and entertaining text as they explore this visually enchanting introduction to the red fox’s secret life.  The story is further enhanced with specialized vocabulary, identified by italics in the narrative and defined in a glossary in the back.

School Library Journal says in a starred review, “This intimate and personal view…is chronicled through a beautifully cohesive relationship between text and illustration. Facts and definitions are seamlessly woven into the narrative. …The art…convey(s) intensity and precision… (and) fuels the foxlike moments with emotion.”
