Released this month, Two at the Top is written by Uma Krishnaswami and tells the story of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary who each talk of their climb of Mount Everest.
Being Chris' first book for Groundwood, the artworks delight in telling the epic adventure of the two men who set out on the same expedition to climb Everest in 1953.
'They tramp over windswept glaciers, crawl across rope bridges, hack footholds in the ice … until finally they reach the top of the world! This remarkable true adventure story, told in a dual narrative, includes illustrated backmatter rich in geography, history and science.' says the publisher.
