Emily & the Captain: A Winter Adventure

  Author:   Noelle Hall  
  Artist :   Mel D’Souza    
  Publisher:  Downhomer

The story continues from the bestselling Emily & the Captain: A Woody Point Story. On a winter visit to Woody Point, Newfoundland, from her home in Virginia, Emily discovers a little lost fox, Rhett. Amazingly, Rhett is also from Virginia. But why has he fled Virginia and how has he gotten all the way to Newfoundland?

Emily and her animal friends find food and shelter for Rhett and they all enjoy the fun of the deep snows of a Newfoundland winter in the Mystical Forest.

But Rhett is homesick and longs to return to Virginia. Glow-ria, the northern light, finds a way to get Rhett home, if that’s what he really wants. It seems Emily and the animals must part with their new-found friend forever.
