Hannah Gold’s unmissable follow-up to the bestselling and award-winning The Last Bear is published this month by Harper Collins.
With beautifully atmospheric illustrations by Levi Pinfold, Finding Bear is a stunning story of survival and a heartwarming tale of love that shows us how hope is born from the smallest of beginnings.
It’s been over a year since April Wood has returned home from her adventure on Bear Island but she can’t stop thinking about Bear. Then she hears that a polar bear has been shot and injured in Svalbard and she’s convinced it’s her friend and persuades her dad to travel with her to the northernmost reaches of the Arctic. So begins an unforgettable journey across frozen tundra and icy glaciers.
But, along the way, she discovers a tiny polar bear cub, desperately in need of her help. In freezing temperature, April must navigate the dangerous Arctic terrain and face her deepest fears if she’s to save him.
Finding Bear is Levi’s third collaboration with Hannah Gold and a perfect sequel to the first book. We asked Levi about working on the illustrations,
"I’m hugely proud to be illustrating Hannah’s books. I love them for so many reasons, not least their adventurous spirit and beautiful discussion of themes so close to my heart. Finding Bear is another first-rate Hannah Gold story, and I’m very lucky to have been involved!"
This is a thought-provoking and inspiring story which will melt your heart as well as ask some profound questions about our impact on the environment.
