An epic story set in a polar wilderness that blurs realism and imagination—fully illustrated for newly independent readers. 

Ida, Max and Jack go to the creek one winter’s day. They play on an ice floe then find themselves floating away—all the way to the polar ice, with just a box, a branch and some sandwiches.

“You probably don’t think it’s true, and we didn’t either, not even while it was happening...”

They find an old hut, meet penguins, see extraordinary things and, after testing their resources in this dramatic land of ice and snow, come home safe at the end of the day.

“What shall we say about where we’ve been?” asked Max.

“Tell the truth,” I said. “We don’t know.”

To the Ice is a beautifully produced chapter book, perfect for imaginative readers and re-readers, ready to be captivated by a real-life make-believe adventure. The kind of adventure that will stay in a child’s imagination for the rest of their lives. 

Translated from the Swedish edition by Julia Marshall.

"An enthralling blend of survivalist realism and fantasy." - Publishers Weekly
