Shackleton's Journey - Activity Book
Do you know an Alice ready for the challenge? Are you looking for a great gift for an intrepid adventurer hoping to follow in the footsteps of Arctic explorers?
With this activity book, readers get to cross the frozen heart of Antarctica with the help of a rather special guide, Sir Ernest Shackleton. A companion book to accompany the bestselling Shackleton's Journey (also available on this site).
The perfect pursuit for young explorers in search of hazardous activities, thrilling facts and puzzles. It features over 35 amazing activities and games, beautifully illustrated by William Grill (Kate Greenaway Medal winner 2015 and New York Times Best Illustrated book winner).
From testing your South Pole knowledge, to vanquishing sea monsters to making a magnetic compass and a paper boat, this book will inform and entertain. A more grown up book (Grill uses a muted colour palette to effectively portray the icy terrain) for the more discerning child who has moved beyond stickers but still wants engaging portable pursuits.
Published by Flying Eye Books, an independent British book press.
A recommended age is not provided by the publisher. My 9 year old has greatly enjoyed this book, but it would also be suitable for tweens and early teens. We suggest 7 - 13 years.
