Based on the true story of the contemporary Australasian Antarctic Expedition this illustrated story book is for children aged 5 to 9 years but all readers with a love of adventure and a desire to learn about Antarctica will enjoy it.

In late 2013 the ice strengthened ship Akademik Shokalskiy became stuck in thick pack ice at the edge of East Antarctica. The fate of the ship's crew and the scientists and tourists aboard became the focus of a world-wide media frenzy over the New Year.

Little known is that there was a very special passenger aboard the ship and in this book, 'Stay' the dog tells us his unique story of the stranding and subsequent dramatic rescue with the help of my colorful photo illustrations.

While helping his friends to study the icy world around them, through the eyes of 'Stay' we learn about the beautiful and environmentally significant frozen continent at the bottom of the world while meeting the cheeky penguins and other animals that live there.

You can preview the book below and then purchase it as an ebook or as a soft cover edition. I'd love to hear what you think of Stay's story!
