The Blizzard Challenge (A Bear Grylls Adventure #1)
|Series:||A Bear Grylls Adventure|
The first thrilling adventure in the series for young readers from survival expert and Chief Scout Bear Grylls. Olly hates activity camp and its pointless activities. Why should he bother building a stupid shelter or foraging for food with his teammates - he'd rather be at home in the warm and dry, where the sofa and the video games are. But then Olly gets given a compass with a mysterious fifth direction. When he follows it, he's magically transported to a high mountain range where he meets survival expert Bear Grylls. With his help, Olly must learn to survive in sub-zero temperatures, including what to do if the ice cracks when you're crossing a frozen lake, or a blizzard sets in. But can his adventure with Bear Grylls change Olly's mind about teamwork and perseverance? And who will Olly give the compass to next?
