The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club
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.
A gorgeously imaginative and snowy middle grade fantasy adventure combining the magic of Peter Pan, the chaos of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the thrilling icy adventure of Northern Lights.
Stella Starflake Pearl has always wanted to be an explorer, and she’s thrilled to be taken on the trip to the Icelands with The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club (even though she’ll have to leave her pet unicorn and pygmy dinosaurs behind).
But when Stella and her fellow junior explorers Ethan, Beanie and Shay get separated from the group, they must face many dangers if they are going to rejoin the expedition, including:
- Frost Fairies,
- Carnivorous Cabbages,
- Outlaw Hideouts,
- Moustache wax with mysterious properties
- And Stella will have to face the question of where she came from before her adopted father found her wandering in the snow . . .
