Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From the moment she saw him, she knew the bear had come for her. How many times had she dreamt of the bear…. Now, here he was, as if spelled from her dreams.

“I will come with you, Bear,” she said.

It is the beginning of an extraordinary journey for the girl. First to the bears secret palace in faraway mountains, where she is treated so courteously, but where she experiences the bears unfathomable sadness, and a deep mystery…

As the bears secret unravels, another journey unfolds… a long and desperate journey, that takes the girl to the homes of the four Winds and beyond, to the castle east of the sun, west of the moon.

This beautiful, mysterious story of love, loyalty and above all, freedom, is inspired by fairy tale, and is magically told and illustrated by Jackie Morris.

About the Author

Jackie Morris lives in a small house by the sea in Pembrokeshire, Wales, where she writes and paints. She has two children, Tom and Hannah, a small pack of dogs and a small pride of cats. Her picture books for Frances Lincoln include The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, Can You See a Little Bear?, The Cat and the Fiddle: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, and How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes. East of the Sun, West of the Moon has lived somewhere in the back of her mind from the first time she ever heard it. Jackie says, “There are some stories that when you hear them for the very first time it is as if you know them, as if they are part of your soul. You then spend the rest of your life trying to understand them. This story is one of those for me.” Morris is a prolific blogger, and her website is jackiemorris.co.uk.
