The fearless feline Zoom is off on another fantastic adventure with his friend Maria to search for his Uncle Roy, a ship's captain at the North Pole. Maria worries because she has not heard from him for many weeks. Donning their warmest clothes, the pair begin their search, beginning with a steep trudge up the long staircase in Maria's big house. They climb snow-covered stairs and pass frosty furniture until they stop at a small hallway door. It opens into a dark, cold tunnel. Adventure and anticipation build as Zoom follows the darkness to the tunnel's end and out into the wintry, snow-capped North Pole. With surprise and relief, Zoom spies his uncle's ship and finds a note on a table explaining that he has headed south. The story captures and keeps readers' attention from beginning to end with its action-packed narrative and accompanying pencil illustrations that draw eyes from words to picture and on to the following page. The short, imaginative sentences have a manageable vocabulary for beginning readers. The black-and-white illustrations display details with a quality of shading that gives each one a photographic look. There is total harmony in this bit of fantasy and adventure- enough to keep curiosity aroused and anticipation high for young audiences.
