Synopsis

Something About a Bear by Jackie Morris

Where the water churns with salmon, thick and rich with leaping fishes, there the brown bear stands and catches the wild king of the river.

Eight wild bears – Moon Bear, Sun Bear, Sloth Bear, Brown Bear, Spectacled Bear, American Black Bear, Giant Panda and Polar Bear – all shown in their wild habitats in spectacular watercolour paintings.

This beautiful book, by the internationally acclaimed writer and illustrator Jackie Morris, will be treasured by children and adults alike, and includes conservation information about the bears.

Bears have wandered through Jackie Morris’s artwork for years, with their wild beauty. In all her books she tries to instil in children and adults alike a love of wild places and wild things and a respect for all creatures.

Selected by Fiona Noble The Bookseller Bears are, of course, a picture book perennial, but nowhere do they get such stunning treatment as the eight bears depicted here. Lyrical and beautiful, in a foil
