$49.99

The Ice Bear, originally published in 2010, has been re-imagined in this deluxe large-format edition. This new edition portrays each of Jackie’s paintings as originally intended, displaying the whole of each painting, printed on a smooth off-white uncoated paper. This magical tale set in Jackie Morris’s stunning icy landscapes tells a tale of tolerance and understanding, and reminds us of our duty to take care of this world’s wild creatures. Jackie’s glorious illustrations and lyrical text now matched by the lavish production values of this book. In distant, icy, northern lands, the ice bear has given birth to two tiny cubs. As she sleeps, Raven the trickster steals one cub away, dropping him as a human child in the path of a hunter and his wife. The childless hunter and his wife rejoice at this wonderful gift and hold their new-found child close. As the years pass, the ice bear never forgets her second cub and pines for what she has lost to humans. AUTHOR: Jackie Morris is an award-winning and internationally acclaimed writer, artist and illustrator, and a previous nomineee for the CILP Carnegie Medal and the Kate Greenaway Award.
