Small Bear - A Dream Tale by Janet Killeen
Imagine the huge seas, the dazzling colours of sky and ice and the amazing creatures of the far North. Here lives Small Bear, with his Mother. He does not understand the world that is changing around him but longs to explore it and rushes into an adventure that very nearly ends in disaster. Only the mysterious power of the Deep can rescue him, and then Small Bear begins to grasp the true meaning of his name and destiny. Author Janet Killeen provides readers with an exciting and touching coming of age adventure in her vibrantly illustrated picture book portraying the exploits of Small Bear. The illustrator is the painter Edward Chilton-Higgins whose use of colour and light magically brings to life the landscape of ice, sea and snow.
