The front cover of The Bear in the Stars

There was once a great, white bear - so magnificent, she was known as the Queen of Beasts.

But her kingdom was changing: once a beautiful, cold, glistening place, over the years the ice began to disappear and slowly the other animals moved on.

The Great Bear had no choice but to leave to find food, friends and a new home - but while she discovers that the world is growing hotter, she finds that hearts are becoming colder. At least, that is, until a small act of kindness changes everything...

The Bear in the Stars is an utterly gorgeous picture book by Alexis Snell, responding to the climate emergency and covering themes of loss, kindness and new beginnings.

With captivating illustrations, this uplifting and inspirational book is a stunning addition to any home - and we have three copies to give away!

If you fancy winning one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Monday, 1 February 2021. Good luck!
