Ranger, the time-traveling golden retriever is back — this time on a dangerous expedition to the South Pole!

Ranger goes back in time to join an early twentieth-century expedition to Antarctica, where he befriends Jack Nin, a cabin boy traveling with Captain Robert Falcon Scott. They’re racing against a rival explorer to reach the South Pole, but with unstable ice, killer whales, and raging blizzards, the journey turns into a race against time. . . and a struggle to stay alive.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Ranger in Time

“This excellent story contains historical details, full-page illustrations, and enough action to keep even reluctant readers engaged.” —School Library Journal

“The third-person narration expertly balances Ranger’s thoughts between the appropriately doglike (squirrels! bacon!) and the heroic (Ranger’s drive to find and protect).” —Kirkus Reviews

“McMorris’s richly rendered illustrations heighten the plot’s many moments of danger and drama, and Messner incorporates a wealth of historical details into her rousing adventure story.” —Publishers Weekly
