520    "Over millions of years, organisms in Antarctica--one of 
       the most extreme environments on Earth--have evolved in 
       amazing ways that enable them to thrive on the ice, in the
       ice, and under the ice. How is climate change affecting 
       the creatures that live in this frozen world? Even in the 
       intensely cold, windy, and dry environment of Antarctica, 
       a wide variety of wildlife--from the massive swarms of 
       krill in the Southern Ocean to the throngs of penguins on 
       its icy shores-- finds ways to thrive. Some species of 
       Antarctic fishes make a natural antifreeze that prevents 
       their blood from freezing solid, and although no trees 
       grow on Antarctica, a forest of giant seaweed flourishes 
       under the sea. Antarctica's creatures are exquisitely 
       adapted to their extreme habitat, but can they survive 
       warmer waters and atmosphere? Scientists are racing to 
       find out. Climate change is already affecting the frozen 
       continent. Though it seems very far away from us at the 
       bottom of the world, we need to remember that Antarctica 
       affects weather, ocean currents, and sea levels all over 
       the planet. Antarctica's creatures depend on the ice. And 
       in the long run, so do we. From talented and experienced 
       nature writer Mary Batten, this amazing nonfiction picture
       book provides valuable information about one of the most 
       hostile environments on the planet. It is an ideal 
       resource for young science lovers and educators looking to
       discuss the effects of climate change. The informative 
       text and stunning artwork by New York Times bestselling 
       illustrator Thomas Gonzalez are sure to spark a passion 
       for conservation of this incredible habitat"--Amazon.com
