Global warming, conservation, the exotic Arctic -- topics that kids are interested in and can get excited about -- make this latest addition to the bestselling series a winner.
The Screech Owls have been invited to the Inuit community of Pangnirtung, high in the Arctic Circle in Canada's newest province, Nunavut. For the Owls, it is a magical world, filled with twenty-four-hour daylight, golf among the icebergs, feasts of raw meat, dogsleds, and the magnificent polar bear. They have come to play in a four-team tournament that features Zeke Zebedee, the greatest hockey talent ever to come out of the Arctic. But they also land smack in the middle of a story of international intrigue, global warming -- and threatened species.
