In distant northern lands, the Ice Bear has given birth to two tiny cubs. As she sleeps, Raven the trickster steals one of her cub away, dropping him as a human child in the path of a hunter and his wife. The childless couple 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. This magical tale set in Jackie Morris's stunning icy landscapes inspires love and understanding, and reminds us of our duty to take care of this world' s wild creatures.
