A gorgeously illustrated nonfiction book about the polar bear, this is a factually accurate as well as a poetic exploration of polar bear bodies, habits, and habitats.
Working in a painterly, expressive way, Jenni Desmond creates landscapes and creatures that are marked by atmosphere and emotion, telling a story about bears that engages the reader's interest in amazing facts as well as their deep sense of wonder.
“Fresh perspectives...gorgeous double page spreads... Desmond adds some wit and whimsy to her fact-based presentation.”—Washington Post (Best Children's Books)
“This book sets a high bar for modern picture book non-fiction.”—Huffington Post
