Synopsis

The Ice Bear's Cave by Mark Haddon

A magical story from Mark Haddon, author of the phenomenally best-selling 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time' When the children wake up one morning the air is silent and the room is full of soft blue light. It's snowed! says Alice. It's like the North Pole! It is the first big snowfall of the year and for Alice, Jess and Robin it means a day off school. They can't wait to to put on their scarves and hats, woolly gloves and wellingtons and go out to dig, play and explore. But before they go Dad gives them a warning: You might just come across the Ice Bear's cave. And so begins an icy adventure in which somewhere hidden under the deepest snowdrifts by the barn, sleeping and dreaming of Arctic skies and frozen seas, is the ICE BEAR!

Reviews

Praise for The Sea of Tranquility: 'A touching recollection, evocatively illustrated, of a child's-eye view of the moon and the excitement and wonder he felt when the first moon landing took place.

'It is back to July 16 1969 for Mark Haddon's The Sea of Tranquility. Apollo II's giant leap for mankind is re-lived through the wondering imagination of a small boy and Christian Birmingham's dream-like celestial pastels. 'Financial Times 'The deliciously enchanting text is complemented by Christian Birmingham's exquisite pastel illustrations, which capture the awe and mystery that the moon had for this small boy.'

... give this book a real feel of awe and wonder. A terrific book...

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
