Martin Jenkins’s bio

Fox Explores the Night: A First Science Storybook

author: Martin Jenkins
illustrator: Richard Smythe

Fox is hungry. She waits until dark, then emerges from her den to hunt for food. Follow her as she pads through the city streets and learns about sunlight, moonlight, and electric light. Shadows grow along alleys and reflections bounce off store windows as Fox moves through patches of light and dark. Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this gentle story is the perfect introduction to light and dark for budding scientists.

Young readers are invited to join a determined fox as she sets out to find her dinner in this simple, stylish introduction to light and dark.
