Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4 Up-- Pringle explores many aspects of this mysterious area that makes up nearly ten percent of the world's land mass, including its plant and animal life, ecology, political claims of various nations, and the implications of its exploitation. Putting forth a strong case for global cooperation, and suggesting the founding of a World Park to save the antarctic regions, he shows how tourism, mineral exploration, and even scientific research have contributed to the degradation of the once pristine area. With lavish full-color photographs and a clear, accessible text, this is a solid purchase for most libraries. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY

I can't believe this book is supposed to be for ages 4-8. I am a college graduate, and I enjoy reading this book and looking at the pictures. looks great on my coffee table (when I can put it down).
