The Polar Bear Explorer’s Club


On her birthday eve, Stella assails her father, Felix, anew, with her determination to become a member of ‘The Polar Bear Explorer’s Club‘, to join him on his adventures to the Icelands. Tradition and Aunt Agatha forbid it, but neither get in Stella’s way- nor Felix’s.

We are catapulted headlong into a wondrous ice landscape of giant yetis, magical goose eggs, frostbite, wolf shadows, bloodsucking red octopi, fairies….. and truths and temptation for Stella.

This is a rip-roaring, sherbet- dab, sparkling adventure story, that demands to become a favourite of readers who long for a great, classic, imaginative series. Alex Bell has conjured a superb cast of characters and settings that will delight, rather like ice lollies or Christmas wishes. We recommend ‘The Polar Bear Explorer’s Club‘ to readers aged from 9 years old.

This is a meaty and sparkling adventure story, sure to enrapture keen readers aged from 9 years old. We can’t wait for the next adventure…..

Who knew moustache oil could be so useful on an expedition?
