September 2023 Non-Fiction Book of the Month

Presented as a splendid large-format hardback, Mission: Arctic journeys deep into the furthest reaches of one of the world’s lesser-explored eco-systems. Revealing previously unknown facts about how and why the arctic is changing at such an alarming rate, and the importance of these changes, this is science at its most engaging, courtesy of Katharina Weiss-Tuider’s lucid text and Christian Schneider’s evocative, detail-rich illustrations.  

Through the pages of Mission: Arctic, after boarding the powerful Polarstern research vessel, readers join “the biggest arctic expedition of all time.” The purpose of the mission is to find out “what’s going on with climate change” through collecting data in an inhospitable world of ice, extreme cold, and deep darkness.   

Stunningly designed, and fuelled by a sense of environmental urgency as it shares context about the interconnectedness of eco-systems alongside significant new insights, Mission: Arctic will absorb young environmentalists and science-mad readers of 8 and upwards.
