  • Description

    Three children go on a polar expedition in an epic, imaginary adventure, fully illustrated for newly independent readers.

    Ida, Max and Jack go to the creek one winter’s day. They play on an ice floe then find themselves floating away—all the way to the polar ice, with just a box, a branch and some sandwiches.

    “You probably don’t think it’s true, and we didn’t either, not even while it was happening…”

    They find an old hut, meet penguins, see extraordinary things and, after testing their resources in this dramatic land of ice and snow, come home safe at the end of the day.

    “What shall we say about where we’ve been?” asked Max.

    “Tell the truth,” I said. “We don’t know.”

    To the Ice is a beautifully produced chapter book that absorbs young readers in a real-life make-believe filled with problem-solving and adventure. This is a thrilling and plot-filled story for budding explorers and ice adventurers – the kind of book children will remember throughout their lives.
