The Ice Bear, originally published in 2010, has been re-imagined in this deluxe large-format edition. This new edition portrays each of Jackie’s paintings as originally intended, displaying the whole of each painting, printed on a smooth off-white uncoated paper.
Back in a time when people and animals lived together in harmony, a bear-child is stolen away 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. One day the child wanders off and a bear comes to take him back to his mother. But by now the hunter is on the trail, determined to kill the creature that has taken his child…
Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris's beautiful story reminds us that we are caretakers of these wild creatures and our actions directly affect their future.
Suitable for children aged 6 and up.
