In a tiny village high in the mountains, an abandoned bear cub is adopted by a lonely orphan child. Soon they are inseparable, beloved and kept safe by the whole village, until the arrival of a glamorous film crew who need a dancing bear in the circus. A gentle and deeply moving story with great charm by a master of children's storytelling.

Author description

Michael divides his time between his writing and running Farms for City Children, a charity which each year takes up to 3,000 children to a working farm for a week. Michael and his wife Clare were awarded MBEs this year for their work with the charity. Before the first farm opened 22 years ago, Morpurgo was a teacher and his knowledge of children's experiences, plus his experience of farms enrich his writing enormously. Michael Morpurgo has won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and the Smarties Book Prize.
