Book Description

This distinctive picture book features entertaining text and dynamic illustrations and is a unique way to introduce readers to a selection of popular winter sporting events and Arctic and Antarctic creatures.

Who do you think would win a game of ice hockey between a team of penguins or polar bears? Or perform the most acrobatic tricks on a snowboard, a whale or a dolphin? Or speed skate the fastest, a hare or moose? You be the judge!

Competing against each other in 10 winter sporting events are a selection of Arctic and Antarctic creatures that are experts on snow and ice. The unique skills each creature would bring to these events are described in a fun yet factual way. Readers are invited to predict who would win the gold, silver and bronze medal in each event.

The Author

Richard Turner is a Performing Arts teacher in Australia, who supports children’s creative voices through drama and dance. He has directed and choreographed musicals, working with students who can sing and dance way better than he can. Like most children, Richard has to be told to eat his peas, but never has to be told to eat his jellybeans or ice cream. He has been on a skateboard, a rollercoaster, an elephant and a camel. He has also been on a spaceship to the moon, but only in his dreams!

The Illustrator

Ben Clifford was born and raised in Tasmania, Australia. He began illustrating after living in the snow with the badgers and brown hares in England. After returning home, Ben began drawing, painting, illustrating and writing books. When he’s not drawing or writing stories, running through forests, climbing mountains or kayaking in rivers, he loves to snowboard and throw snowballs at his friends.
