Product Details


★ “In this spry novel, Newbery Honoree Preus deftly threads together a nature adventure, history lesson, cautionary environmental tale, and an animal love story. . . . Preus wraps up her entertaining and informative narrative on a heartwarming note as the loquacious, wryly contemplative squirrel finds his way—back home and in life. Evocative pictures by Pilgrim (Big and Little) augment the story’s ample heart and humor, and an author’s note contextualizes the fur trade, including its impact on indigenous people.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“Le Rouge relates his story with drama and flair, presenting a colorful prism through which to view the daily life of a voyageur. . . . A rousing introduction to the life of a voyageur told from a unique perspective.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Preus’ text is rich in setting detail, especially regarding the natural world that the voyageurs traverse. She also excels at integrating French vocabulary into the story and appends a pronunciation guide. Pilgrim’s frequent black-and-white illustrations help to clarify details and break up the text for younger readers. . . . will please readers”—Booklist

“a boatload of information and entertainment. Softly sketched black and white illustrations, a French pronunciation guide, and historical notes are included.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
