When twelve-year-old Tam is sent to work at a bear farm in the city, he has never felt so alone. He hates seeing the cruel way the bears are treated, but speaking up will mean losing his job. And if he can't send money home, how will his family survive? When a sick cub arrives at the farm, Tam secretly nurses it back to health and they develop an unbreakable bond. Tam swears to return his beloved cub to the wild, but how will they ever find a way to be free? Deeply moving and powerful, Moon Bear is an unforgettable story of compassion, hope, and bravery against overwhelming odds.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Lewis cements her position as a major children's writer with a powerful new wildlife novel about the South-East Asian bear trade. Highly recommended.' * Fiona Noble, The Bookseller *
'There is sufficient Laotian history and culture woven in to provide an authentic, intriguing setting, along with just the right measure of suspense.' * Kirkus reviews *
'Gill Lewis' eye-opening account of bear farming is utterly chilling.' * Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian *
'Moon Bear by Gill Lewis is a moving story about a boy and a bear in captivity in Laos. It shows how ideas of freedom are relative to one another, particularly nature and mankind, the city and the jungle.' * Jon Walter, WRD magazine *
'It's rare when an exploration of so many important social issues is accomplished in such an entertaining and moving manner.' * Chris Brandon Whitaker, Kidliterati *
