Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A polar bear cub explores her artic world and finds something new--a friend. Companion to New York Times Best Illustratedbook /New York Times bestselling book.

On a chill, bright morning, a polar bear cub awakes inside her cozy den. She hears the seagulls' far-away calls and clambers out into the day.

Suddenly a snowy something tumbles down a little snow hill. She sees a snowy face, snowy paws, and snowy fur. What can it be?

Thrilling words and glowing pictures make this morning-time tale of first friendship as satisfying as a warm hug.

Review:

"Thompson and Savage follow up Polar Bear Night (2004) by giving the polar bear cub from the first book another chance to explore her surroundings, as well as make a new friend. Savage's linocuts, with their round shapes and creamy sunrise palette of pinks and blues, are once again showstoppers (a spread in which the bear and her new friend enjoy a perfect quiet moment under the sea is especially nice), while Thompson's restrained prose conveys plenty about the pleasures of companionship. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
