The Island and the Bear

The Island and the Bear

Author: Louise Greig Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 16/03/2017

Anything can happen anywhere. Anywhere was an island. Anything was a bear. One windy morning on a wild and quiet Hebridean island, a bear appeared where there should not have been a bear. The gentle giant played happily in streams, danced in the wind, and would not harm a living thing. But even friendly bears don't belong on Scottish islands. Will he ever find his way home? This touching tale, recounted in Louise Greig's gentle verse, and brought to life by Vanya Nastanlieva's enchanting illustrations, is inspired by a true story that has since become legend in the Scottish Hebrides.
