Description - Iceberg by Claire Saxby

WINNER: 2022 CBCA Picture Book of the Year
NOTABLE BOOK: 2022 CBCA Book of the Year, Eve Pownall Award

In the final freeze of an Antarctic winter, green tails wave across a star-full sky, as if to farewell endless nights. If this world looks empty, look closer ... Penguins trek across the ice to their winter homes. As the temperature warms, birds fly above on their long migrations. And with the advent of summer, beneath an iceberg, the sea is teeming with life. Ocean, sky, snow and ice - minute greens and giant blues - dance a delicate dance in this evocative portrayal of the life cycle of an iceberg.

'Richly informative and brimming with detailed facts presented in lyrical, sophisticated, evocative language ... Text and image balance each other perfectly in their delicate yet powerful tone. An expert merging of knowledge with grace.' Books+Publishing
