Cooper & Packrat: Mystery of the Missing Fox | Tamra Wight

$12.95

When an accident puts Cooper’s dad in the hospital, Cooper must shoulder some new responsibilities. But he’s distracted. First, he and his friends find a fox caught in an illegal trap on the campground’s land. Then kits start to go missing from the fox den. Who would want to catch foxes? And why? Cooper, Packrat, and Roy must protect the den, find the kits, and rule out Summer, the new girl who lives across the lake, as a suspect. Juggling new campground duties, feeling guilty over his father’s accident, and desperate to help the fox kits, Cooper must make some tough decisions about who—and what—should come first.

About the Artist

Tamra Wight lives in Turner, Maine. For twenty-five years, she and her husband and their two children ran the nearby Poland Spring Campground, which provided her with plenty of inspiration for her spirited and exciting fiction. She weaves details from her daily life into her work, drawing on everything from campground chores to unexpected wildlife encounters to inform her writing. During the school year, she is a teaching assistant at Whittier Middle School in Poland, Maine. All four Cooper and Packrat Adventures, Mystery on Pine Lake, Mystery of the Eagle’s NestMystery of the Missing Fox and Mystery of the Bear Cub are Junior Library Guild selections. When Tamra isn’t writing, she enjoys wildlife watching, hiking, geo-caching, kayaking, power-walking, and snowshoeing. She can often be found (for those who know where to look) hiding under her “cloak of invisibility,” a huge poncho-shaped camouflage cloth that she uses to disguise herself from passing skunks, coyotes, and foxes.

Carl DiRocco is a graduate of the New England School of Art & Design, and has illustrated Dear Big, Mean, Ugly Monster (a Minnesota Humanities Book Award Finalist) and Our Principal Promised to Kiss a Pig (a Children’s Choice Selection). Carl lives in Reading, Massachusetts, and loves to camp with his wife and three sons.
