Synopsis

"Necessity is the mother of invention." "Practice what you preach." Join the wolf, polar bear, raven, and many more as they learn (and teach!) many of life's invaluable lessons in this arctic retelling of the classic Aesop's Fables. A ringed seal discovers that the truth can be a powerful friend; an Arctic Ground Squirrel learn to be careful what she wishes for; and the porcupine knows that slow and steady wins the race. With beautiful illustrations by Alaskan painter Jim Fowler, the twelve fables here are uniquely set in the landscape of the Alaskan wilderness.
