Book 1 of 6: The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club Series.

It sounded like a respectable and worthy enough death for an explorer - tumbling from an ice bridge to be impaled upon a mammoth tusk - but Stella really, really didn't want that to happen, just the same.

Join Stella Starflake Pearl and her three fellow explorers as they trek across the snowy Icelands and come face-to-face with frost fairies, snow queens, outlaw hideouts, unicorns, pygmy dinosaurs and carnivorous cabbages . . .

When Stella and three other junior explorers get separated from their expedition can they cross the frozen wilderness and live to tell the tale?

A gorgeously imaginative middle grade fantasy adventure combining the best of Peter Pan, Lemony Snicket, Northern Lights and Alice in Wonderland.

"A magical adventure of friendship, bravery and derring-do in a richly imagined world." The Bookseller.

"This could well be the most huggable book of the year. It's ludicrously cute . . . It's also an entertainingly ripping yarn. A joyful, witty tone that channels everything from Lemony Snicket to JK Rowling. An (iced) gem." - SFX.

"Whisks you humorously along . . . an inventive adventure . . . a hoot." - The Sunday Times.

"Wintry, atmospheric, highly imaginative fantasy." - Metro.

"A fantastic frosty adventure." - Sunday Express.

"This highly imaginative, adventure story conjures up a vivid polar landscape with daring deeds and dangerous magic." - Carousel.

"A hugely enjoyable, fast-paced magical adventure." - WRD.
