An irresistable animal adventure for readers aged 8+
“Hannah Gold's The Last Bear is quite simply one of best children's books of the last few years. Packed with empathy, adventure and beautiful illustrations by Levi Pinfold, this much anticipated follow-up takes us on an equally inspiring and heartwarming return to Bear Island with our heroine April. Unmissable.”
April Wood has returned home from her adventure on Bear Island. But, over a year later, she can’t stop thinking about Bear.
When April hears that a polar bear has been shot and injured in Svalbard, she’s convinced it’s her friend and persuades her dad to travel with her to the northernmost reaches of the Arctic. So begins an unforgettable journey across frozen tundra and icy glaciers.
But along the way, she discovers much more than she bargained for – a tiny polar bear cub, desperately in need of her help. In freezing temperatures, April must navigate the dangerous Arctic terrain and face her deepest fears if she’s to save him.
Beautifully illustrated by Levi Pinfold, Finding Bear is a stunning story of survival and a heartwarming tale of love that shows us how hope is born from the smallest of beginnings.
Hannah Gold grew up in a family where books, animals, and the beauty of the outside world were ever present, and is now passionate about writing stories that share her love of the planet. The Last Bear was her children's debut which became an instant classic and international bestseller upon release in 2021. A Saturday and Sunday Times Book of the Week, it went on to win both the prestigious Waterstones Children's Book Prize and The Blue Peter Book Award and has been translated into 25 languages.
