About this book

Long, long ago, in the icy lands of the far north, Raven the mischief-maker takes a bear-child from his mother. A hunter and his wife find the child and, wrapping him in sealskin, they sing him songs of the ice, the wind and the great white bears. But the child wanders off, with consequences for both animals and people. Set in the pristine polar regions of the Arctic, Jackie Morris reminds us in this lyrical story of trickery, loss and restoration, that we are caretakers of wild creatures, and our actions directly affect their future.

The mini edition has 32 pp and measures 103 × 140 mm.
