9780060726089: The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily

Dino Buzzati's classic tale chronicles the terrible winter that sent the starving bears down into the valley in search of food, as well as their struggles with an army of wild boars, a wily professor who may or may not be a magician, snarling Marmoset the Cat, and, worse still, treachery within their own ranks. Over all this, the bears triumph with bravery, ingenuity, humility, and high spirits.

Product Description:

Starving after a harsh winter, the bears descend from the mountains in search of food and invade the valley below, where they face fierce opposition from the army of the Grand Duke of Sicily. After many battles, scrapes and dangers, the bears reign is established over the land, but their victory comes at a price.

Review:

'The Bears Famous Invasion of Sicily is one of the noblest books I know.' --Lemony Snicket

'Out of Italy, which gave the world Pinocchio, has come a new and fine children's story, the kind that grown-ups borrow from kids.' --Time

'This moving story... is one that children of nine-plus will remember enjoying long after they have finished reading. A bonus is a quirky readers companion.' --Newbury Weekly News
