In Antarctica, ice stretches “as far as the eye can see,” but don’t let the stark landscape fool you: the southernmost continent is teeming with life. Encounter giant forests of algae beneath the waterline, and meet creatures including Adélie penguins, tiny and essential krill, the largest animal on Earth, and even the researchers who labor to learn more about the endangered landscape. Thomas Gonzalez’s watercolor illustrations are lively and precise, helping to make this an enchanting, educational introduction to Antarctica’s biodiversity.
