Up on the world's highest mountain, the sky is tinged the black colour of space and the air is almost too thin to breathe. How did Ed, a small, shy boy from the tiny town of Tuakau in New Zealand, grow up to become the world's most famous mountaineer and adventurer? How did he climb Everest and do so many other astonishing things? This exceptional picture book, written by internationally acclaimed children's author David Hill and illustrated by Phoebe Morris, tells the story of Sir Ed and his climb to the top of Mt Everest. It's a story about courage, skill and determination, and an inspiration to anyone who dreams of reaching the top.

Taking on a challenge that would have seen lesser writers fail, David Hill, best known for his award-winning children's fiction, captures the essence of the mountaineer's life in a taut yet never simplistic text, while Wellingtonian Phoebe Morris makes a stunning debut as an illustrator.First to the Top introduces Sir Ed to a new generation in a splendid homegrown picture book paying tribute to the heroic mountaineer's remarkable life. From the arresting cover, through cameos of his younger life to haunting, other-worldly mountainscapes, Morris's style gives the old story a cool new edge.' Ann Packer, New Zealand Listener 'It is easily the best children's book I've read this year.' Sarah-Jane Barnett, Booksellers NZ Blog '...a grea
