SynopsisThe Biggest Thing in the World by Kenneth Steven
A little polar bear cub explores the world with his mother and discovers many huge and wonderful things. But in answer to the question 'Is that the biggest thing in the world?' the answer is always 'no'. At the end of the day, little bear wants to know what the biggest thing really is - and finds out with his mother's help that it is love. Scottish author Kenneth Steven is the author of The Sea Mice and the Stars, a picture book which was chosen as the runner up in the 2006 Royal Mail Scottish Booktrust Awards.
About The Author
Kenneth Steven is a versatile Scottish author who finds much of his inspiration in the landscape and people of northern Scotland. Kenneth began writing at the age of 12 and his first novel was published when he was 16. He now writes for both adults and children, from fiction, poetry and picture books (including The Sea Mice and the Stars which was short-listed for the Royal Mail Scottish Children’s Book Awards) to handbooks on the art of crafting and publishing poetry.
Kenneth also writes for broadcast (he was awarded a Gold Sony Radio Award in 2006 for his programme on St Kilda) and his fluency in Norwegian enables him to work on translations (his translation of Lars Saabye Christensen’s The Half Brother saw him long-listed for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and short-listed for the international IMPAC Award). Kenneth particularly loves the freedom that writing provides: the finding and weaving of stories and the ability to create a new world. Kenneth frequently presents his work to adults and children. He also offers himself as Writer in Residence to schools and the wider community.
