Book Details

Book Description

This is a book full of creatures: birds, fish and mammals. They are all embarking on one long, intense journey that will take them across oceans and continents, for thousands of miles - braving predators, starvation and extreme weather conditions - to reach the very top of the world. Each spring, animals migrate north to spend their summer in the snow-melt Arctic. In this season, the sun rarely sets and so millions of animals - of over 200 species - are drawn by the rich food sources and safe breeding grounds. The Arctic becomes a haven for new life. This adventure is the largest, most extraordinary migration in nature and one that is beautifully captured in Nick Dowson's lyrical narrative and Patrick Benson's stunning illustrations.

"Outstanding... Patrick Benson's eerie illustrations [which] convey the whole atmosphere of the High Arctic so brilliantly." (Spectator)" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
