It was the best Christmas gift two children could get - an expedition to Antarctica, the mysterious White Continent! When Suravi and Rishi Thomas got a place on a Chilean navy ship sailing to Antarctica, they couldn't have imagined the stormy time that lay ahead. Four-storey-high waves battered the decks, ferocious winds sharp as ice blades lashed out, hulky icebergs came crashing in until their ship began to teeter like a paper boat in rain. There was only one thing for the brother-sister duo to do - hold on to their bunks for dear life. It has never been smooth sailing to Antarctica - the coldest and windiest continent on earth - for even the most intrepid explorers. The dangers have never stopped the brave ones, though. And as their ship scissored its way through sea and ice, Suravi and Rishi became fearless discoverers, driven by a passion for penguins and spellbound by Antarctica's many extraordinary sights: gigantic blue icebergs, playful pods of whales, legendary albatrosses, rainbow skies at midnight and vast carpets of thick ice.
