Author(s): Alex Bell

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a 17 session Literary Leaf for The Polar Bear Explorer's Club by Alex Bell in which children begin by inferring and looking at the genre of the book before retrieving and identifying the effect of the vocabulary choices made by the author.

Synopsis of Text:

We chose this book for a literary leaf as it part fantasy-part adventure. It is also has themes of magicl with wonderful characters.

Stella has always wanted to be an explorer like her adoptive father, Felix, who is a member of The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club. The problem is that girls aren’t allowed to join The Club, but when the chance arises to join Felix, Stella is determined to prove she can be as good an explorer as anyone.

She soon finds herself on an expedition to find the coldest part of the Icelands. But it doesn’t go to plan, as she and her fellow junior adventurers get separated from the group and have to find their way across the Icelands together. While the Icelands is full of incredible places and creatures to discover, it’s equally full of danger.
