5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! 6 Oct 2012
By Met2012
Purchased this book today from Cheltenham literary festival for my youngest child who is four. I have to say this is one of the best books I have seen in a long time and I have been buying children's books for a fair few years. The story is exciting and fun and the illustrations are fantastic - we both loved it! I will definitely be buying more from this Series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! My Reception class loved it! 2 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach a class of 4-5 year olds and bought this book as it linked to our "Polar Explorers" topic. My class loved it! It provided lots of Literacy links (after reading the book we wrote lists of items a polar explorer might need, we wrote postcards from the Arctic, we wrote character descriptions of the main character and lists of animals spotted.) I would most definitely recommend this book to teachers (and also to parents!) It has lovely clear illustrations!
