I thinkChris Kurtz should thank his illustrator dearly The cover of this book is so ridiculously irresistibly cute that coupled with its titleconcept I was drawn like a moth to a flame And upon reflection I can see how it would be hard to make a novel in the South Pole exciting because there is not a whole lot going on down there No potential drama with polar bears no Inuit no encroaching winter as summer fades type problems because winter never leaves so it's down to a pig and some snow and tales of friendship So we relied upon shipboard rats which was pretty boring and the threat of getting eaten which was sort of horrifying The people who wrote that the book spent way too much time on rats were right and this was a very long book with precious little action Credit where credit is due my kids seemed to like this book Gillie especially seemed very taken with it and both of them have logged plenty of hours in the last couple weeks pretending to be sled pigs in Antarctica But as a shared experience there is not a lot in this for the parents and I was bored to tears It has some good messages like Don't Give Up and Dream Big and You Can Change Your Destiny but not a whole lot of entertainment value to sweeten the pie Also I feel like it would not have killed him to throw in some penguins for me
