Synopsis

There's a lot going on at the South Pole! There are slippery slopes and frozen floes and wild animals all around. But when one penguin goes looking for adventure, he doesn't see anything exciting at all going on. Could it be he's just not looking closely enough?

From the creators of the Berenstain Bears comes a storybook filled with adventure for all.

 

About Stan Berenstain

See more books from this Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain are the creators of the Berenstain Bears series, which began in 1962 with The Big Honey Hunt. Nothing Ever Happens at the South Pole was initially intended to be its follow-up, but the reception to the Bear family was so overwhelming that Stan and Jan put the manuscript and art away to focus on the Berenstain Bears. Over the next 50 years, the Berenstain Bears series has grown to include more than 250 titles and sell nearly 300 million books. After Stan passed away in 2005, the family went through their basement archives and rediscovered the original manuscript and artwork for Nothing Ever Happens at the South Pole. With help from her son Mike, Jan finished the book in the hope that this new classic would inspire more of the smiles and fun that the Berenstain family has been supplying young readers for more than half a century.

City Book Review

Amusing cartoon-style illustrations play a big role in the story: penguin is oblivious to the many dangerous, big, rough, and tough things happening around him at the South Pole, but the illustrations let readers in on the secret.
