Waterstones Says

The stunning sequel to Waterstones Children's Book Prize winner The Last Bear, Gold's exquisitely written and enthralling novel follows April's journey to Svalbard amidst rumours that her friend Bear has been shot.

The unmissable follow-up to the phenomenal bestselling and award-winning The Last Bear. Beautifully illustrated by Levi Pinfold and perfect for readers 8+.

April Wood has returned from her adventure on Bear Island, but she can’t stop thinking about Bear.

When April hears that a polar bear has been shot and injured in Svalbard, she’s convinced it’s her friend and persuades her dad to travel with her to the northernmost reaches of the Arctic to find him.

So begins an unforgettable journey across frozen tundra and through glaciers. But in Svalbard, April discovers more than she bargained for – a baby polar bear cub, desperately in need of her help. April must navigate the dangerous Arctic terrain and face her deepest fears if she’s to save him.

Beautifully illustrated by Levi Pinfold, Finding Bear is a stunning story of survival and hope that reminds us how change is made from the smallest beginnings, and asks how far we are prepared to go to protect what we love.

Magical' Rob Biddulph A triumphant return to April and Bear's world, this time with the loveliest baby bear. A roaringly snowy adventure' Nizrana Farook A brilliant, beautiful sequel that resonates with emotional truth. April and Bear's second adventure asks profound questions about our impact on the environment while keeping readers on the edge of their seats. If ever there was a book to spark change, this is it’ Aisling Fowler 'Few books have touched me so deeply as Finding Bear. When you read it, you’ll feel as if the Arctic is running through your veins, too. It’s impossible not to get profoundly invested in the lives of Hannah Gold’s brilliant characters. An unstoppable, heartwarming sequel of extreme importance. I’ll be recommending this book forever' Carlie Sorosiak ‘It was pure joy to follow April back to the Arctic on her heartfelt search for Bear.
