Long, long ago, in the icy lands of the far north, Raven the mischief-maker takes a bear-child 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. But the child wanders off, with consequences for both animals and people. Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris reminds us in this lyrical story of trickery, loss and restoration, that we are caretakers of wild creatures, and our actions directly affect their future.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a fantastic, magical book with stunning illustrations, which really made the story come to life. It is as enchanting for children as it is for adults. ...Highly recommended. We look forward to reading more books from one of our favourite picture book authors."


"We love the magical illustrations."


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.'

"Author Jackie Morris' mythical story is set in the Arctic and reminds us of the way in which people and animals can live in harmony. Gorgeous artwork depicts the story of a polar bear cub that is stolen by a raven then adopted ny hunters, and has to choosebetween his two families."

"Both words and pictures are of equal beauty. Morris's paintings are both magical and awe-inspiring and as she says at the beginning of the story, `Words held a magic`; assuredly hers do herein."

"An atmospheric journey through the Arctic by way of the Inuit legend, with an important environmental message. It was well received in hardback."

"We love the magical illustrations."
