Waterstones Says

Originally published in 2003 and now available for a whole new generation to enjoy, Pattou’s enchanting story is based on a Nordic folk tale and effortlessly retains that timeless, magical atmosphere. Seamlessly shifting point-of-view with each chapter, North Child’s narrative of a girl and a bear’s wintry quest is simply spellbinding.     

A beautiful, epic story of destiny, magic and love... Reborn for a new generation of readers.

Rose is an unsusual child, a North Child. For Rose was born facing north, and the old stories say she is destined to travel far from home on a dangerous journey. Making a pact with an enormous white bear, Rose travels on his back to a mysterious castle that holds a dark enchantment, a darker temptation, and the key to her true destiny... A spellbinding adventure to curl up with on long winter nights.

“Everyone loves polar bears”

A truly wonderful re-telling of 'East of the Sun, West of the Moon'. This book is sheer delight, it has just the right amount of romance, adventure and good old fashioned hardship and toil. Utterly charming
