North: The Greatest Animal Journey on Earth

Review

This exquisite picture book invites readers to accompany a host of animals from walruses to whales, as they migrate to the Arctic for the summer months.

A lyrical and informative text supports gloriously detailed illustrations, which include depictions of the five thousand mile journey to the Arctic Circle of a grey whale and the impressive flights of cranes and snow geese who travel even further from Mexico and China.

This book has been designed to be repeatedly pored over; many of the spreads are wordless, allowing the youngest of children to visually ‘read’ them unaccompanied. North is a visual treat for children and adult readers alike!
