When two young foxes set out to explore the forest, they encounter all kinds of creatures. Some of them are friendly, while others would like nothing more than to eat the two young explorers! Rusty and Ginger may be able to outfox bears, bobcats, cougars, and wolves, but can they unlock the mysterious box that awaits them on Treasure Island? And will the little girls they meet there turn out to be friends or foes?Join Rusty and Ginger as they travel through the woods. Author Tim Ostermeyer's beautiful wildlife photography provides a fox's-eye view of the forest. With a charming story to guide the way, and a fact page of wildlife information for every animal introduced in the book, readers can explore nature alongside Rusty and Ginger.

An adorable story about two young foxes, Rusty & Ginger. The stunning cover photo gives this book instant appeal and a simple story accompanied by beautiful wildlife photographs and a fact file on each animal the foxes encounter is sure to delight children.

Here's just a few of the facts I learnt while reading this book:
  • foxes can run 45 mph
  • deer have special stomachs that allow them to eat poisonous mushrooms
  • wolves are born blind and deaf
  • cougars cannot roar
I'll be passing this gorgeous book on to my 7 year old niece who loves animals, I'm sure she'll find it entertaining and educational. Adventures of Rusty & Ginger Fox would make a beautiful gift for a child in your life.
