Each spring, animals migrate north to spend their summer in the snow-melt Arctic. In this season, the sun rarely sets and so millions of animals – of over 200 species – are drawn by the rich food sources and safe breeding grounds. The Arctic becomes a haven for new life. This adventure is the largest, most extraordinary migration in nature and one that is beautifully captured in Nick Dowson's lyrical narrative and Patrick Benson's stunning illustrations.
