Except Antarctica!

Chilling journey!

Although turtles are never found in Antarctica, one brave turtle has decided to venture to this continent. On its journey, the turtle is joined by an eclectic group of companions, including an owl, a dung beetle, a snake, a mouse, a frog, and a bee. However, the funny thing is that none of these creatures are typically found in Antarctica, and no one knows whether they will be able to survive the harsh and frigid weather there.



We picked this book for its title. The book recounts an amusing and unprecedented animal adventure through the ice lands. It details the events along the way, culminating in an unexpected twist. The illustrations complement the storyline effectively. We advise parents to use their discretion when reading the content because it contains words that may not be appropriate for children.



Todd Sturgell’s Except Antarctica! is a delightful tale of adventure and perseverance, told in a lighthearted and humorous manner that will keep children laughing from start to finish.
