Are the penguins of Antarctica getting their fill of krill, or has climate change reshaped the Antarctic food web? Riley joins Uncle Max on a voyage to the South Pole to find out! Home to whales, seals, penguins, and 90% of the world’s ice, Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. Will the fierce Antarctic winds stop Riley’s investigation cold? Find out in this breathtaking adventure at the bottom of the world!

A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.

“I’ve been fortunate to have been on many wildlife expeditions all around the world, and from reading ‘Adventures of Riley’ it seems that he was right there with me. These delightful tales are true-to-life, authentic descriptions of tracking animals in the wild!” – Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus, Columbus Zoo, Host, “Animal Adventures” TV series
