The story will give kids the scoop on Antarctica including how the continent formed, how cold it is, who owns the continent, who wants to own it, the history of adventurers who went there and the wildlife, including penguins. Environmental issues are also addressed. Mimi is way too cold! Papa lands the Mystery Girl on an ice floe (that means it will float away!). Grant encounters penguins up close and personal. And Christina is intrigued by how you even survive here. There's plenty of history, science, and strange characters to make a mystery!
