The endearing new chapter book series by two-time Newbery Honor Book author Patricia Reilly Giff.

There's a blizzard outside and Jilli is curled up with a good book. As she reads about the Sneaky Arctic Snow Fox
to her dog, Fiercely, the winds begin to howl.
Fiercely is scared, too.
Soon, Jilli sees two pointy ears and a fat tail
moving through the snow drifts outside the window.
Now she knows! It's that sneaky fox from the Arctic
who has come to get her and Fiercely!
Suddenly Fiercely escapes out the door, and Jilli and her friend Jim run after him. They must save Fiercely from being eaten! Will they make it in time?
Two-time Newbery Honor book author Patricia Reilly Giff has created a charming story filled with "shivery" fun and delicious surprises. Diane Palmisciano's hilarious illustrations of Jilli scaring herself about the fox are reminiscent of sketches by the Marx Brothers.
