Synopsis

Gone Again Ptarmigan by Jonathan London

Every winter, willow ptarmigan birds put on new feathery coats, softly white and perfect for hiding in snow. In the spring they take on a spotted brown more suited to nesting. This is just one of the captivating changes that take place in the Far North as animals adjust to the changing seasons. Gone Again Ptarmigan allows readers to be wilderness explorers. Following the course of a year, readers learn how the birds change their plumage, forage, and evade predators, crossing paths with many of the other creatures sharing their land. With lively acrylic illustrations and an author's note at the end to extend learning, Gone Again Ptarmigan is a beautiful introduction to the adaptable animals of the wild North.
