· 155 words · about a minute

Today (27th February) is International Polar Bear Day which seems like the perfect opportunity to shout about The Last Bear written by Hannah Gold and illustrated by Levi Pinfold!

The story follows April as she travels to Bear Island with her father, a scientist whose research takes them to the faraway Arctic outpost. April is told that there are no polar bears left on Arctic Island so she is surprised to find one starving and barely alive whilst out exploring.

The Lost Bear is a heartfelt fantasy story firmly set in the real world about the realities of climate change and the connection between humans and nature.

Touching on themes of friendship, grief and the resilience and determination of young people, The Lost Bear is a deeply moving debut with illustrations that perfectly capture the wilderness setting.

Currently available in hardback, The Lost Bear would make the perfect gift for nature-loving readers aged 8+.
