Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2018

A heart-warming story about helping outsiders that highlights the plight of polar bears in today’s changing climate.

Crow saw it first. The strange white creature, carried upon the dark waves towards the shore…

When a polar bear arrives unexpectedly in the woods, the other animals fear and avoid him, suspecting him to be dangerous - and his odd habit of collecting leaves only adds to their distrust.

Then one day, they watch as he attempts to fly over the water with wings made of colourful leaves... trying to get back home. Perhaps he isn't so different after all?

A British artist, illustrator, author and Potter, Sandra Dieckmann’s work is inspired by the weird and wonderful in nature, mixing the fantastical elements of dream and play with real marvels from the natural world. In 2011 Sandra was chosen by illustrator Shaun Tan as the Emerging Talent in Illustration for her image ‘Fox Tree’. Leaf is her first book.

'The intricate images, filled with polychromatic leaf-patterns and dynamic stillness, are too good to miss.' – The Guardian
