Description

"A lovely little miracle of a book." -Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan "[A] large-hearted and riveting medieval adventure." -William Alexander, National Book Award-winning author of Goblin Secrets "A breathtaking adventure." -Kirby Larson, Newbery Honor--winning author of Hattie Big Sky A runaway boy befriends a polar bear that's being transported from Norway to London in this "stupendous coming-of-age tale stuffed with adventure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). The polar bear is a royal bear, a gift from the King of Norway to the King of England. The first time Arthur encounters the bear, she terrifies him. Yet, strangely, she doesn't harm him-though she has attacked anyone else who comes near. So Arthur finds himself taking care of a polar bear on a ship to England. Tasked with feeding and cleaning up after the bear, Arthur's fears slowly lessen as he begins to feel a connection to this bear, who like him, has been cut off from her family. But the journey holds many dangers, and Arthur knows his own freedom-perhaps even his life-depends on keeping the bear from harm. When pirates attack, Arthur must make a choice-does he do everything he can to save himself, or does he help the bear to find freedom? Based on the real story of a polar bear that lived in the Tower of London, this timeless adventure story thoughtfully looks at the themes of freedom, captivity, and the bond between a boy and a bear.
