In distant northern lands, the ice bear has given birth to two tiny cubs. As she sleeps, Raven the trickster steals one cub away, dropping him as a human child in the path of a hunter and his wife. The childless hunter and his wife rejoice at this wonderful gift and hold their newfound child close. As the years pass, the ice bear never forgets her second cub and pines for what she has lost. This magical tale set in Jackie Morris’s stunning icy landscapes tells a tale of tolerance and understanding, and reminds us of our duty to take care of this world’s wild creatures. Jackie’s glorious illustrations and lyrical text are now matched by the lavish production values of this book.
