my newest book, ARCTIC DANGER

GAP logo

I am pleased to let you know that my second picture book, ARCTIC DANGER, is published by Guardian Angel Publishing. And I want to thank Eugene Ruble for illustrating it.

Arctic Danger, cover

The story is about an Alaskan brother and sister who take a leisurely kayak trip down a stream to the store. They go under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.  Along the way they see lots of wildlife but also encounter dangers. There is additional information at the end of the book about the important and interesting pipeline. I hope you and your children and students will find the story both exciting and informative.

ARCTIC DANGER is recommended for boys and girls ages 6-11.

The book is available at Guardian Angel Publishing:

and Amazon. All reviews on Amazon are welcome.

Visit my website, Words With Wings, to read about how this book came about.

    Congratulations, Barbara! Did you travel to Alaska as part of your research before writing the book? (That would be neat if you got to do that.)

      Here is an answer to Laura’s question: Rather than going to Alaska doing research, I went to Alaska and was inspired by things and people I saw. Later on I read about a pipeline spill.
