Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2011

A useful book about the Environment.

Carl Norac's delicately woven tale of the touching friendship between a young boy and a solitary polar bear is accompanied by beautiful, evocative illustrations by Kristin Oftedal. Kristin Oftedal is a shining new talent in children's book illustration. She takes inspiration from nature and has a soft spot for polar bears, which are a recurrent motif in her work. She is a previous winner of the Macmillan Prize for Illustration. Big Bear, Little Brother is Kristin's first picture book.

Synopsis

Big Bear, Little Brother by Carl Norac

On the ice, the wind is blowing gently. Big Bear has stopped running. How wonderful it is to be still... to close his eyes... to dream! But the stillness is broken when Big Bear hears a cry and opens his eyes to see a child tumbling from the sky.
