The Top of the World: Climbing Mount Everest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the scarlet ibis to the blue-tongued skink, Jenkins depicts a whole world of colorful animals in his signature style. The animals range from old favorites like the pink flamingo, to rare and fascinating creatures such as the long-wattled umbrella bird and the ringed caecilian. He explores the reasons for each animal's bright colors, from attracting a mate to camouflage. This book is fun, fascinating, and beautiful!

Synopsis:

In this stunning picture book, Steve Jenkins takes us to Mount Everest - exploring its history, geography, climate, and culture. This unique book takes readers on the ultimate adventure of climbing the great mountain. Travel along and learn what to pack for such a trek and the hardships one may suffer on the way to the top. Avalanches, frostbite, frigid temperatures, wind, and limited oxygen are just a few of the dangers that make scaling this peak one of the most extreme physical challenges one can experience. To stand on the top of Mount Everest is to stand on top of the world. With informative text and exquisitely detailed cut paper illustrations, Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkins brings this extreme journey alive for young adventurers.

Synopsis:

Jenkins has created a striking tour-de-force in this picture book that follows a climber on his way up the imposing face of Mount Everest. Illustrations.
