Summary
"Sitting on the most extreme North and South Poles are two of our planet's most mysterious regions, but what similarities and differences do they share? This title explores the incredible geography of both regions, how polar bears and penguins survive, and introduces the explorers who dared to travel into these unknown spots on Earth in the past. We go under their oceans and discuss the effects of climate change."--Website
