Anna Across the Arctic Children’s book launch

A true story of the longest, fastest fox journey ever recorded

Alaskan co-authors Liz O’Connell and Arin Underwood, illustrated by Arin Underwood, present an Arctic science story about a four-pound blue morph fox tracked by a satellite collar, in the longest, fastest fox journey ever recorded.  The surprising distance and speed of the small fox generated news internationally in July last year.

Liz O’Connell chose to make this book an Alaskan product.  The Alaska talented collaboration includes artwork scans by Digital Blueprint, printing by Color Art Printing, and Carleen Dawn, an Alaskan trekking layout artist.  Both Arin and Liz are undergraduates from the University of Alaska Anchorage. Their collaborative interest in the Arctic blend well to tell this story. This is an approved Made in Alaska product.


We chose March 3rd as our launch day because the World Wildlife Foundation is celebrating World Wildlife Day at the United Nations.  With the theme of Sustaining All Life on Earth, the UN World Wildlife Day is a global celebration of the beautiful and richly diverse forms of wild animals and plants on our planet. We believe Anna Across the Arctic depicts these sentiments in our book.
