Pressestimmen'intricate and beautiful' TES Selected in Top Ten Bear Picture Books: 'Jackie Morris is one of my favourite children's illustrators and storytellers, and The Ice Bear is one of her most beautiful stories. It has the timeless feel of all the best myths about it - the poetic, mystical story of the stolen polar bear cub who has to choose between his two families is wonderful in itself, but when combined with Jackie's detailed and exquisite paintings, it's a book to treasure forever.'
