Sophie Scott Goes South by Alison Lester

Sophie Scott Goes South has been shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book Illustrators award.

Nine year old Sophie is heading off to Antarctica with her dad, the captain of the ice-breaker Aurora.

Lester uses child-like drawings, photographs, maps, stamps and storyboard collages to flesh out her story. The story is told in a diary format similar to that of Lester's 2005 award winning book Are We There Yet?

This book is obviously designed to fit into the Primary School Stage 3 Human Society & Its Environment - Antarctica topic. The information is accessible, easy to read and understand and very interesting.
