A gentle and beautifully illustrated story for readers aged 8+

Young animal lovers will be enchanted by this gorgeous book by talented author/illustrator Emma Chichester Clark

If you're looking for gentle storytelling, beautiful illustrations and a brave and lovable lead character, look no further. Polly Pecorino is a contemporary novel with a distinctly classic feel that kids and parents will love.


Are you brave enough to enter the Wild Bear Woods? Polly Pecorino rescues animals, and she can talk to them too. She spends all of her time caring for those at Happy Days Zoo, where the devious owners, Mr and Mrs Snell, will do anything to make money. One day they steal a bear cub, certain that he will do wonders for ticket sales, but the ferocious bears living in Wild Bear Woods want their cub back. Will Polly be brave enough to stand up to the Snells and take Booboo, the bear cub, back where he belongs?

Emma Chichester Clark was born in London but raised in Ireland. She trained at the Royal College of Art, learning from the great Quentin Blake, and has illustrated numerous book jackets. She won the Kate Greenaway medal in 1988.
