The Last Bear by Hannah Gold


Children’s Bookseller Review by Alex:

‘Left to please herself while her father works in a cabin on a tiny island off Norway, April roams the island to see what she can find. What she finds is something that shouldn’t be there, that definitely isn’t there according to everyone.

A lone polar bear is the victim of our changing climate. April knows that without her, he won’t survive. What follows is the building of a beautiful friendship, a daring rescue attempt and the salvation of a relationship that was lost. It’s a gripping story, wonderfully told with a strong environmental message. Definitely a recommended read!’
