Did you know that a polar bear can swim as far as 100 kilometres without stopping? Did you know that there is a huge shark living in the icy waters of the Canadian Arctic whose eyes appear to glow in the dark?
Find out how these animals and others are able to survive in one of the coldest and most inhospitable places on Earth. Divided into short chapters, each discussing a particular animal, Les animaux de l'Arctique by Chelsea Donaldson is a well-researched book illustrated with many colour photographs.
