Penguins, whales, seals, fish, and many other animals are all part of the food web of Antarctica. Environmentalist author Madeleine Dunphy uses a cumulative approach, combining lyrical verse with repetition, to reveal the interdependency of life in Antarctica. Tom Leonard's vibrant paintings, from the flash of orange on a penguin's beak to iridesent icebergs jutting from the sea, beautifully capture a wondrous miracle--the circle of life.
HERE IS ANTARCTICA will fascinate and inspire children as they explore this endangered environment page by page.

Review:


Named best children's picture book - Nautilus Book Award

This is a great book. It details the food web of Antarctica in songlike prosereminiscent of The House that Jack Built.” The paintings are beautiful, realistic,and full of detail. The final two pages identify the illustrated species and give more detailed information on Antarctica, including how icebergs are formed andthreats to the continent. My three-year old daughter and I both love this book. Iwill be on the lookout for other Here Is...” books in this series.”
Science Books & Films

A rhythmic, cumulative text and detailed acrylic paintings emphasizing the pinks, blues and grays of the icy sea and sky introduce the relationships among animals in the Antarctic ecosystem. Each double-page spread adds another animal: two species of seals, orcas, krill, petrel, silverfish, skua and three species of penguins. Like other books in the Web of Life series, this concludes with a brief explanation of the area and the animals mentioned (allowing the careful reader to distinguish the different seals and penguins illustrated). [T]he familiar, House-that-Jack-Built pattern will appeal to young listeners, and the repetition isa boon for early readers. Teachers will welcome this appealing introduction....”
Kirkus Reviews

Realistic full color illustrations on luxurious spreads grace this ecological story” of Antarctica’s wildlife. Written in an expanding verse narrative thatechoes the rhyme of the house that Jack built,” the book’s text vividly captures the close relationships of orcas, penguins, and seals, as well as petra, skua,silverfish and krill. The progression provides readers a dramatic pictorialaccount of this delicate and important food chain.”
