Michael Morpurgo brings alive the precarious way of life for creatures living in the very coldest reaches of the world.
The first of two stories in this volume is a lyrical, dreamy tale of The Rainbow Bear capturing the power of the great polar bear and its vulnerability both in the wild and in captivity.....while Little Albatross tells of the dangers faced by a baby Albatross when it's parents go foraging for food.
Michael Foreman’s illustrations bring the icy wastes of the landscapes into sharp focus whilst giving substance to the strong animal characters.

Collected together for the first time and featuring Michael Foreman's original stunning illustrations, this is a gem of a book to be enjoyed over and over again.
