Opening: Pierre was a polar bear. He lived in the Far North, at the very top of the world, where everything is frosted over with ice and snow.
Summary: Story of a curious polar bear enticed by bird’s chatter about the South: the sunshine, the trees and the flowers, and his adventures far from home.
Why I like this book: A sweet and innocent adventure story beautifully illustrated in bright bold colors that still feel fresh and timely.
