On Top of the World is an amusing, informative and entertaining account of the highs and lows endured while travelling through the awe inspiring kingdom of the ice bear. A fascinating travelogue, the book is illustrated throughout with Pollyanna's paintings.The book tells the story of her two painting expeditions into the frozen wastelands of the north, accompanied by her daughter and business partner Anna-Louise. These two slim blondes are probably the least likely arctic adventurers ever - but embarked on their remarkable expeditions in order to enable Pollyanna to sketch wild polar bears in their natural habitat. By experiencing some of the most remote regions of the planet Pollyanna feels she is able to portray wildlife in a uniquely compelling way, and bring an unmistakable accuracy and reality to her work.
