ANTARCTICA
It's a book series about the southern continent
Concept
We'd like to introduce a series of 4 books about Antarctica. The plot contains various facts about this continent, how it's being studied, who studies it, why it's so important, how a polar station works and what problems are being solved by scientists.

What links the books together is the main character — a journalist named Tom.


Book 1. About polar stations in Antarctica
Book 2. About glaciers
Book 3. About nature in Antarctica
Book 4. About technology used on the continent
The four books put together form a circle, showing a map of Antarctica
