A band of polar bear are happily playing about on the ice until- yikes! crack! -three bears float off on iceberg. As their tiny floating ice boat shrinks, they become more and more desperate for a safe place to land but with each passing island, they are rejected: the cows declare them too furry, the pandas say there are too many of them, the giraffes prefer to turn away... will they ever find sanctuary? A perfect book for introducing two topical themes to the very young: asylum and global warming. 'So important to have as much a range as possible of books that explore themes of displacement, exclusion, hospitality and social responsibility...a great conversation starter' (Farrah, Learning Programme Leader at Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, LL reviewer). 'A gentle and beautiful look at an important and topical theme' (Elena, Community Librarian, LL reviewer). Age 3-6, Paperback 24pp
