Miss Pickerell Goes to the Arctic by Ellen MacGregor TX851

Miss Pickerell Goes to the Arctic by Ellen MacGregor, TX851, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, 1966, 116 pages. Illustrated by Paul Galdone. Book #4 in the Miss Pickerell series (which totals 16 books.)

Description: “‘It may come as a shock, Miss Pickerell,’ said the pilot, ‘but we may not be able to reach the air base after all.’
What is Miss Pickerell doing deep in the arctic, in a cargo plane that is running out of gas? Thousands of miles, too, from her favorite cow and her niece and nephew- and their short-wave radio.
And what if they have to make a forced landing NOW, on the very edge of the Arctic Ocean? Never fear! Miss Pickerell– and her umbrella- are here!” (From the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
