The third epic adventure in the Sir Licksalot Series. Sir Licksalot & The Arctic Fools is honored with "Best of the Year" 2013.
Unsure if it is a sizzling heat wave or global warming, the boys decide to have an outdoor sleep over. Bobby loses his temper and storms out of the tent to cool off next to the magical fountain. Without thinking of the consequences, he makes a remark that causes everyone, including Sir Licksalot, to become vulnerable to extreme conditions. The boys make a priceless discovery while Sir Licksalot fearlessly leads them into a few pickles around every slippery and unpredictable corner.
This fast paced epic adventure will melt your heart, make you sweat, and give you goose bumps.

In this, the third of a great series by D.L. Carroll, the boys and Sir Licksalot head off on a new adventure without the girls. This time they find themselves in the arctic region, where they meet up with Polar Bears, Harp Seals and Whales. Dressed in summer clothing when they left, they were sure they were going to die, until they happened upon in Ice Castle and entered the igloo that contained weather appropriate clothing and gear to keep them warm on their journey. From scary moments where they think there is no way they will live another moment, to moments filled with laughter and antics ... this is an adventure they come to love as they learn about Global Warming and how they can help to reduce the cause and effects of this scientific phenomena.
True to form D.L. Carroll has taken each book in her series up a notch in literary brilliance and captivating content. Her way with words is one moment witty and one moment engaging, in thoughts that go much deeper than what is seen at the surface. This allows for children to begin pondering what they have read and take the subject matter deeper if they so desire, by researching the subject on their own, or just enjoy as a great chapter book if that be their level of interest. Either way, this book will satisfy and not disappoint.
I encourage you to join Sir Licksalot, Danny, Bobby, Timmy and Blaze on this, their craziest of all adventures to date as they share with you their encounters with Polar Bears that dance, Whales that bring them back to the safety of home... and all the adventurous points of interest in between. Get ready for one wild ride!
