Urso Bruno and the White Emperor
In the middle of a wintry night, deep in the forest, Urso hears a cry for help carried over the cold winds. Wolves are on the prowl and two young polar bears are lost in the forest. Though he may be the size of a thumb, who is Urso Brunov if he is not the little father of all bears? Traversing snow laden forests on the backs of stags and crossing wide seas atop a whale, this tiny yet brave hero returns the bubs to the land of Rainbow lights - and is treated to a grand celebration in the land of ice before returning home in a wondrous moonlit flight on the back of a goose. Brian Jacques spins a super tall tale in this spirited adventure! The book is beautifully illustrated by Alexi Natchev (www.alexinatchev.com).
