A sparkling tale about a lost polar bear, a smart little girl, and a dash of fascinating true science. When Hannah spots a polar bear floating on an iceberg in Sydney Harbour, she assumes he’s an adventurer, but then soon realises he’s actually lost. Unfortunately, our sharp-eyed heroine seems to be the only one who can see him.
Iconic Sydney locations are depicted in the Feiners’ bright, graphic style, and children will relish the book’s fun illustrative details and dry sense of humour (when a seagull eats one of the polar bear’s chips, he eats the seagull). This story pays tribute to the creative problem-solving of young people, while also acknowledging the reality of climate crisis. 4 stars. Review submitted by Bronte.
