Sophie Scott Goes South (Hardcover)
This friendly, informative, and beautifully presented picture book is based on the author’s own experiences and shows the wonder of Antarctica through a child’s eyes.
"Told from a welcome, fresh perspective."
"Inquisitive readers eager to learn about the most mysterious corners of the planet will love this glimpse into near-uncharted territory."
—Booklist, starred review
"Sophie offers enthusiastic observations of the natural world, as she spots exotically shaped icebergs; penguins, seals, and whales; and the Southern Lights. . . . Endpapers packed with historic, geographic, and scientific statistics provide additional info about the continent."
"Reminiscent of Webb's My Season with Penguins but for a slightly younger crowd, Sophie Scott's journal will draw readers in to the wonders of our most remote continent."
—The Horn Book Magazine
"[A] stimulating, well-integrated mixture of text and images. . . There is great child appeal in the images, harsh conditions, and survival strategies, as well as in the behavior of animals."
