A picture book that takes readers on a voyage of extremes, from the coldest spot on the planet to the hottest. First stop: ice floes and their snowflakes. Last stop: scrubland and its fiery sun. But isn’t friendship reason enough to make the journey, despite its hardships? What will the trip to the other end of the world be like for our two companions from colder climes? A “road-book” where time stretches out over the course of pages and landscapes traveled through, and humor hides in the details at every turn. A book with pop colors to inspire wanderlust and homecomings, where the journey is its own reward.
