Archer Helmsley's grandparents - famous explorers who went missing on an iceberg two years ago - are finally coming home.

Archer is overjoyed, but he may be the only one. Rumours are flying that Archer's grandparents were never really abandoned on the iceberg; that they're making it all up. Archer knows the rumours are false. With his best friends, Oliver and Adelaide, and their new neighbor, Kana, Archer sets out during a snowstorm to restore his grandparents' reputation.

Following on from The Doldrums, Nicholas Gannon has again created an exquisitely illustrated timeless story filled with adventure.
