The Ice Bear - Jackie Morris



"The Ice Bear"🐻‍❄️ is a timeless tale that has been reimagined in this deluxe large-format edition. Originally published in 2010, this new edition beautifully showcases each of Jackie Morris's paintings as originally intended. The artwork is presented in its entirety on smooth off-white uncoated paper, allowing readers to fully appreciate the depth and detail of each illustration.❄️

The story is set in a time when humans and animals coexisted in harmony. It follows the journey of a bear-child who is separated from his mother and taken in by a hunter and his wife. Wrapped in sealskin, the child is raised with songs of the ice, the wind, and the great white bears. As the child grows, he longs to return to his bear family, leading to a poignant and heartwarming reunion. However, the hunter is determined to reclaim his "son," setting the stage for a compelling narrative.🐦‍⬛

Set against the backdrop of the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris's story serves as a reminder of our responsibility as caretakers of the natural world and how our actions can impact the future of these magnificent creatures.❄️

This edition of "The Ice Bear" is suitable for children aged 6 and up. It is a hardback book with 40 pages, and its dimensions measure 37 x 28 cm. With its enchanting storytelling and stunning artwork, this book is a captivating addition to any library, offering a message of harmony and responsibility towards the wild and beautiful world around us.
