Shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book
Prize 2019
A fast-paced fantasy adventure that will set your imagination
soaring!

Twins Arthur and Maudie Brightstorm receive word in Lontown that
their famous explorer father has died in a failed
attempt to reach the southernmost point in the world. Not only
that, but he has been accused of stealing fuel
before he died!
The twins don't believe the news, and they answer an ad to join
a new attempt to reach South Polaris. It's their only hope of learning
the truth ... and salvaging their family's
reputation.
As the winged ship Aurora sets sail, the twins must keep
their wits about them and prove themselves worthy of the rest
of the crew.
But will Arthur and Maudie find the answers they seek?
"Hardy has drunk from the same cup as Philip Reeve and Philip
Pullman.' - Literary Review
"[A] pacy tale of lies and greed versus loyalty and derring-do"
- Guardian
"A ripsnorting
yarn." - School Library Journal
"Marvelously
imagined." - Publishers Weekly
"Stand out" - Kirkus Reviews
