Except Antarctica

We rated this book:


Antarctica is really cold and not a lot of animals live there, or people! In Except Antarctica, the narrator talks about animals and begins with the turtle. He says some things about the turtle, then says that they live everywhere except Antarctica. The turtle doesn’t like hearing that and decides to go there anyway. Then the narrator sees an owl and says some things about it, including that they don’t live in Antarctica. The turtle invites the owl on his journey and then they bring along more animals, including a dung beetle. The narrator is partly upset and partly doesn’t believe that the animals will make it across the ocean.

Except Antarctica is silly and goofy and fun to read. My favorite part was reading about the dung beetle because of what they do. I like that at the back of the book there are more facts about the animals in the story! The way that the animals make it to Antarctica is smart and silly, and what happens to them when they get there is funny, too. This is a fun story to read by yourself or with someone else.
