However, with the use of daily diaries and his parent?s photographs and descriptions, the extreme north above the Arctic Circle and the animals that live there became very real.
His parents saw polar bears, muskoxen, caribou, whales, walrus, seals, and many other animals and birds.
Each animal they saw had a story about it. The visits to the Inuit villages were a delight for Mom and Dad. This is a land few people get to see so it is an exciting place to read about, even if you may not get there.

Brock and Becca were going to do something they had never done before. They were going to sleep overnight on a train. There was a problem. The beds were missing. Brock also had another problem with a fish packer who thought Brock had taken his boat which was full of salmon. Thank goodness a trip to a candy factory can cure almost any problem.
