A gorgeous, lyrical non-fiction picture book exploring the Arctic winter—title 1 in a timely new series about the world's most precious habitats

This beautiful book brings together facts about the Arctic, an evocative narrative, and breathtaking illustrations.

The story begins at the outer edge of the Arctic Circle, where the extraordinary wood frog is beginning to freeze, and then works its way inwards to the North Pole—through the tundra and into the sea and ice at the very center. Then the scenes work their way back outwards. As the book progresses, winter progresses. By the end we are back to the taiga, back to spring after the long winter, and back to the wood frog, who is now defrosting in anticipation of warmer weather.

This is a timely book that is sure to stimulate discussion between parent and child about the importance of protecting our planet's ecosystems and habitats. It's an essential purchase for both school libraries and the home. Future titles in the series will focus on the following habitats: coral reef, forest, desert, ocean, rain forest, river, and mountain.
