The Snow Bear by Holly Webb

The Snow Bear
As the snow begins to fall just days before Christmas, Grandad helps Sara build an igloo in the garden with a small snow bear to watch over it. And when Sara wakes in the middle of the night, it looks very different outside. She sets out on an enchanted journey through a world of ice, but will she ever find her way home...

Another fantastic read from Holly Webb. My daughter really enjoys her books and looks forward to her new releases with glee. This book is a hardback with a beautiful illustration on the cover of a polar bear with her cub.

The story reminds me of the popular Christmas film, The Snowman. A child who is taken on a magical tour by a snow bear after falling asleep in an igloo in the garden. As with all of Holly Webb's books, there is a strong animal presence in the story and the story teaches the reader about life in The Arctic. The story includes some simple, but beautiful, pencil sketch illustrations which add to the story.

I would recommend this book to readers who like animals and think it is great for fans of Holly Webb's who are growing out of her other books.

Thank you to the publishers, Stripes Books, for sending me the book to review.
