About the Author
The Children's Laureate Alison Lester grew up on a farm overlooking the sea. She still lives in the country and rides her horse, Woollyfoot, whenever she can. Her picture books mix imaginary worlds with everyday life, encouraging children to celebrate the differences that make them special. Her alter ego, Sophie Scott, was inspired by her own voyage to Antarctica as an Antarctic Arts Fellow. Visit
"Told from a welcome, fresh perspective."

"Inquisitive readers eager to learn about the most mysterious corners of the planet will love this glimpse into near-uncharted territory."
--Booklist, starred review

"Sophie offers enthusiastic observations of the natural world, as she spots exotically shaped icebergs; penguins, seals, and whales; and the Southern Lights. . . . Endpapers packed with historic, geographic, and scientific statistics provide additional info about the continent."
--Publishers Weekly

"Reminiscent of Webb's My Season with Penguins but for a slightly younger crowd, Sophie Scott's journal will draw readers in to the wonders of our most remote continent."
--The Horn Book Magazine

"[A] stimulating, well-integrated mixture of text and images. . . There is great child appeal in the images, harsh conditions, and survival strategies, as well as in the behavior of animals."
--School Library Journal
