LoveReading View on Iris and Isaac

Atmospheric wintry ladscapes and very characterful bears inhabit this UKLA award winning story of friendship and sharing

Prize-winning illustrator Catherine Rayner has produced a new outstanding title. Polar bears Iris and Isaac fall out over sharing their nest. Each stomps away in a Big Bear Huff but soon both find that they don’t enjoy anything half as much on their own. Luckily, they are reunited and find they can share the nest after all. Set against a stunning winter landscape, this is a perfect book about friendship.

Iris and Isaac Synopsis

Iris and Isaac are NOT FRIENDS. Off they stomp, in a big huff, as far away from each other as possible. And as they stomp, they see funny, strange and wonderful things. If only they were together to share them...From Catherine Rayner, winner of the 2009 CILIP Kate Greenaway medal. A warm and touching story exploring friendship and the importance of sharing. Beautifully written text and wonderfully individual artwork.

Iris and Isaac Press Reviews

'..the warm-hearted story about the breaking and remaking of friendship, with its underlying message about the importance of sharing, is gently and humorously conveyed.' The Guardian
