If any of your charges have been enjoying watching Frozen Planet, the BBC’s latest nature extravaganza, then it might be wise to prepare for the more literally inclined amongst them to point out the incongruity of Miki being able to list both a polar bear and a penguin as her friends – but of course, the joy of Miki’s icy home is that it’s a place of fantasy, where anything is possible and wishes do come true, although not necessarily in the way one might have expected. Stephen Mackey’s gentle images, all smudged lines and muted shades, allow him to include daring elements of risk and danger in the narrative whilst maintaining a reassuring sense of dreamy serenity. Blissful.
