Sophie Scott Goes South by Alison Lester

In 2005 Alison Lester went to the Antarctic as an Antarctic Arts Fellow. Her alter ego, 9-year-old Sophie Scott, tells the story of the journey from the wide-eyed perspective of the captains daughter. This is a  wonderful educational travel book for kids that is as readable and fun as any regular picture book. This book is jam packed with interesting info about Antarctica and the boat she’s on, picturesque photography and whimsical illustrations that will capture the imagination of intrepid children everywhere. With part of the proceeds going to the Royal Children’s Hospital, this is a wonderful book to be read to, and by, children 5 and up. Hardback, $29.95.
