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 young 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 broad watercolor 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.

Jonathan London is a poet and the author of many picture books, including the Froggy series. He lives in Graton, California.

Jon Van Zyle is recognized throughout the U.S. for his striking paintings of Alaska’s wildlife and landscape. He lives near Eagle River, Alaska.
