One day Lars, the Little Polar Bear, rescues a husky puppy from a deep crack in the ice. Instead of thanking Lass, the puppy snarls and yaps at him. Disgusted, Lars heads off towards the sea. The little dog follows him and soon finds herself in trouble -- again stranded on a floating piece of ice. "Please don't leave me!" she calls to Lass. "I'm hungry and I want my mother!" So once again, it's Lass to the rescue. But can he get the impetuous pup back safely to the rest of the husky team? Fans of Lars's earlier adventures will welcome him back in this new story, and those meeting him for the first time will be won over by Hans de Beer's beguiling hero.
