Winter holidays can be just as fun as summer with the Swallows and Amazons!
'You know what it's like. Dark at teatime and sleeping indoors- nothing ever happens in the winter holidays.'
Or so Nancy thinks. Then the lake ices over completely and the Swallows and Amazons, along with Dick and Dorothea - 'the D's' - plan a race to find the North Pole. How will they reach it if they can't sail? By sledges of course! But when a blizzard blows up and there is a mix up about signals, the D's disappear into the Arctic night. Disaster looms. Can the Swallows and Amazons save their friends?
This is Book 4 of 12 in the Swallows and Amazons series.
