Arctic Wolves


Have you ever seen white wolves? 

They are Arctic Wolves,  breathtakingly 
beautiful and dignified creature.

I am working on a picture book about them. 
Last year I went to see a few of them at 
Wolf Conservation Center in South Salems, NY.
You can see what Atka is doing now here.



I am Atka!

She wants to be among the twinkling stars in the sky!

She thought she would never be happy in the ocean....

hm.... is it true?
