The Last Bear

Coming February 2021 (HarperCollins)

There are no polar bears left on Bear Island. At least, that’s what April’s father tells her, when his scientific research takes them to this desolate and remote Arctic outpost for six months. But one summer night under the endless gaze of the midnight sun, April catches a glimpse of something distinctly bear-shaped loping across the horizon.

A polar bear who shouldn’t be here – who is starving, lonely and a long way from home. Determined to save him, so begins the biggest and most important journey of April’s life.

A Heart-Warming Adventure

“This is an important first novel, important for us, for polar bears, for the planet. It is deeply moving, beautifully told, quite unforgettable.”

Michael Morpurgo

“The noise came again.

        Much closer now. This time so fierce and loud and frightening it sent a shiver down her spine. Even if she wanted to run away, she couldn’t. Instead, she became rooted to the ground as every nerve in her body buzzed and hummed like electricity. It was as if time suddenly froze, or at least slowed down. The air itself felt sharp and still. The wind stopped. Even the sea held its breath.
And April knew if she looked up, her life would never be the same again. That this moment was going to alter her in some way. Maybe even forever.

She slowly raised her eyes.

      And there, standing on the other side of the beach, about fifty meters away was the most magnificent creature she had ever seen.

‘There you are!’”

Imagine making friends with a polar bear… The Last Bear is perfect for readers of 8+, beautifully illustrated throughout by Levi Pinfold – winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and illustrator of Harry Potter 20th anniversary edition covers.

This moving story will win the hearts of children the world over and show them that no one is too young or insignificant to make a difference. The Last Bear is a celebration of the love between a child and an animal, a battle cry for our world and an irresistible adventure with a heart as big as a bear’s.
