June 17, 2017 – Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the highly anticipated release of Shimji, The Channel Island Vixen by Christina Steiner. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California, Shimji is the author’s fourth juvenile fiction book celebrating the natural world.

Shimji, a young Channel Island vixen, dreams of going where no island fox has ever gone: to the place her ancestors came from thousands of years ago. After talking with a sea lion named Malibu and a seagull named Topanga, she finds the island’s harbor and stows away on a boat headed to the California coast. During her adventure on the mainland, Shimji befriends both wild and domesticated animals—learning from their different ways and gaining knowledge of the world. Her curiosity satisfied, Shimji longs to return home, only to be discovered by humans—scientists who want to send her to a zoo... Can Shimji escape and find her way back to her island home?

[Shimji, The Channel Island Vixen] This story, beautifully illustrated by Steve Ordonez, familiarizes the reader with the history of the Channel Islands and its early inhabitants, the Chumash. For Shimji, the story represents the fulfillment of an impossible dream, the forging of friendships, and learning to survive in a foreign environment.
