With exquisite full color illustrations and delightful humor, Nicholas Gannon takes us on a wild ride with Arthur B. Helmsley, grandson of famous explorers who have gone missing in Antarctica. Arthur, a dreamer and wannabe adventurer gathers two companions and heads out on a zany adventure to rescue them. Full of wonderfully drawn characters and great storytelling, this is a spectacular read for all ages and particularly for fans of Brian Selznick. Highly recommended!
