The Book That Made Me: James Mayhew 17/07/19
When a little boy's pet polar bear grows up, he's too big for the house, and has to be found a new home. But where? In her debut picture book Sophy Henn arrives at the perfect answer - in the snowy lands of the Arctic - after investigating the kind of places which a very young reader might offer as a solution.
So, in the simplest of images and text, set against a variety of single colour spreads, the boy and his bear look at possible homes where bears of different sorts might be found: a toy shop, a zoo, a circus, a forest, a cave and a jungle before they go home, and the fridge gives the boy the best idea.
