Will takes the family to see sea lions, bears and eagles then they travel to Nome, where it is much more wild. Throughout the book, there is discussion about climate change and lots of facts about the animals and people of the Alaska wilderness are given. If you like Magic Tree House stories, you will probably like this.

What happens when a dog drops a tennis ball down a prairie dog hole? Nothing less than the great fuzz frenzy! The prairie dogs are wondering what the ball is and whether it's dangerous when Big Bark, the resident bully, tells everyone to stand back and let him look. But Pip, the smallest prairie dog, discovers that the tennis ball has fuzz that comes off! They all pull off fuzz, decorate themselves, and have parades until the fuzz is all gone. Then they start arguing because some prairie dogs have more fuzz than others. Finally, Big Bark ends up with all the fuzz, but then he gets grabbed up by an eagle! Can they save Big Bark? Do they want to? The ending is great, and the pictures are priceless. Who knew there were so many ways to wear tennis ball fuzz?
