Reviews

Snarky dialogue and the hapless narrator's growing frustration add lots of humor to the engaging story...[a] well-executed and entertaining book. - Horn Book


Sturgell depicts his animal travelers with some naturalism, adding the occasional playful detail and, once they realize what Antarctica is like, comically dismayed expressions. - Booklist


[D]ebut creator Sturgell has a savvy sense of visual pacing, and the meta-comic repartee is spot-on. - Publishers Weekly


Readers will laugh out loud at the animals' recalcitrance and the narrator's frustrations, all the while absorbing a great deal of information. Delightful and hilarious. - Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review


If you have young readers who are desperate to know what kind of animals can survive at the southern tip of the Earth, this is the book for them...a good read aloud option for kids between 4-8. - Susan Harari, Youth Services Book Review
