Another sort of Arctic adventure is that of Danger, "A cool cat/ Some say a fool cat/ A mean, lean break-all-the-rules cat" daring—or dumb—enough to lead a dogsled team. Riddles, the author of this quirky tale, won the 1,049-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome in 1985. Danger is Riddles's cat in real life, and the book reflects her affection.
