Experience the majesty of Everest, rising like a frozen colossus above the Himalayas. To those who call its base home, this mountain is a mystical wonder, revered as the "Mother Goddess of the World" and the "Peak of Heaven". For adventurers, it offers a daring and exhilarating test to overcome. In this captivating retelling from award-winning author David Long, relive the epic and often tragic attempts of mountaineers to conquer the summit. Finally, in May 1953, Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay achieved the impossible and stood atop the world's highest peak, forever cementing their place in history.

(What is an AR level?)

(Accelerated Reader is a computer programme used in some schools for monitoring and managing children’s independent reading practice.
We send all our books to be levelled so any schools using the programme can incorporate our books into their reading scheme.
The AR level of a book does not relate to or impact its Reading Age (RA) or Interest Age (IA).)
