The Last Dog in Antarctica
A novel by

'...into the annals of modern polar history strays another character - part legend, part myth, part fibreglass. She is STAY.' THE AGE Left alone on the streets of Hobart to collect money for the Royal Guide Dogs of tasmania, a Labrador called Girl tries to make the best of it. Her dreams of adventure can never come true though, as she is, after all, made of fibreglass. But then one night some rowdy Antarctic expeditioners walk past her on their way to the docks and before she knows it, Girl has been dognapped, smuggled aboard the Aurora Australis, and is headed for Antarctica with her own Antarctic nickname - Stay. But the southern continent throws up more adventures than Stay could ever have imagined. She's slimed by King Neptune, picked on by the Antarctic huskies, dropped, repaired, hidden, flown, chained up, liberated, befriended, lost and betrayed. Will she ever make it back to Australia with the money she's raised for the Guide Dogs? this is the first book in a new animal series by award-winning author Jesse Blackadder and is based on the true story of Stay, who was smuggled to Antarctica in 1991 and is still having adventures there today. Ages: 9-12 (and anyone who loves Antarctica)
