The second of eight books in the Fifth House Going Wild
children's nonfiction adventure series, Amazing Animal Adventures at the Poles
presents world-famous naturalist Brian Keating's amazing-but-true firsthand accounts of his travels in the world's remote polar regions. Seemingly devoid at first glance of all but the most basic of flora and fauna, the Arctic and Antarctic lands and waters are actually full of exciting natural wonders and fascinating creatures that must be seen to be believed!
Join Brian Keating as he describes:
- Swimming with the canaries of the ocean in Cunningham Inlet
- Playing with minke whales in the Antarctic
- Meeting the superbears of Frobisher Bay
- Watching kings in their finest suits on South Georgia Island
- Living on the edge in the Antarctic
Each story, told by Keating with boundless energy and enthusiasm, provides details in easily digestible bites and features full-colour photographs with fact-filled cutlines, a small glossary, and an information sidebar - "Brian's Notes." Also included in the book are an activity to encourage students to have their own backyard adventures, a full-colour world map showing the locations of Keating's wildlife adventures, and an index.
