9781845079680: The Ice Bear

Back in a time when people and animals lived together in harmony, a bear-child is stolen away from his mother. A hunter and his wife find the child and, wrapping him in sealskin, they sing him songs of the ice, the wind and the great white bears. One day the child wanders off and a bear comes to take him back to his mother. But by now the hunter is on the trail, determined to kill the creature that has taken his child. Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris's beautiful story reminds us that we are caretakers of these wild creatures and our actions directly affect their future.

Review:

'intricate and beautiful'



This wonderful book by suprememly talented artist Morris is packed with sumptuous illustrations that children will pore over. It is a beautifully written story of a child lost and found, and will be a must for every teacher, as it demonstrates the importance of humans living in harmony with creatures of the wild.



'intricate and beautiful'

Selected in Top Ten Bear Picture Books: 'Jackie Morris is one of my favourite children's illustrators and storytellers, and The Ice Bear is one of her most beautiful stories. It has the timeless feel of all the best myths about it - the poetic, mystical story of the stolen polar bear cub who has to choose between his two families is wonderful in itself, but when combined with Jackie's detailed and exquisite paintings, it's a book to treasure forever.'
