Rebecca has written and illustrated a magical educational adventure story inspired by the challenge of the Catlin Arctic Survey. The story, ‘To Know the Real Answer’ is narrated by Pen Hadow, the Expedition Leader, and is an engaging tool to encourage children and adults to understand the importance of learning about the melting Arctic sea ice, global warming and climate change.
