This September we’re very excited to be publishing Time to Move South for the Winter, written by Clare Helen Welsh and illustrated by 2019 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winner, Jenny Løvlie – a breathtaking new picture book about animal migration, filled with arctic wildlife and a subtle message about caring for our planet.
Over the cold, mirrored waters of the Arctic, a tiny tern sets off on the world’s longest animal migration. On her way, she passes humpback whales, caribou, Canada geese, leatherback turtles and monarch butterflies, each on their own incredible journey south for winter. When the Arctic tern finally arrives, she must find a new home on the Antarctic shore… until it’s time to return to the northern skies once again.
Time to Move South for the Winter is a beautiful, lyrical story, perfect for young animal fans and environmentalists, with a map and double-page spread of non-fiction facts at the end.
