"A thought-provoking story with a powerful message about conservation" The Guardian
The ice is melting so Polar Bear sets off in search of a new home. Join him on his adventures across the seas and discover the many friends he meets along the way.
The 10th anniversary special edition of this beautifully illustrated story has a powerful message of conservation and is full of things for parents and children to talk about. It also includes bonus content and activities.
Frann Preston-Gannon was the UK’s first recipient of a Sendak Fellowship and spent a month living with the great Maurice Sendak himself at his home in Connecticut, USA. She worked on The Journey Home during her stay. The book was shortlisted for both the Waterstones Children’s Prize and the Cambridgeshire ‘Read it Again’ Book Prize and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway medal. In 2015 The Journey Home was reimagined as a play by the London based puppet theatre, Little Angels.
A thought-provoking story with a powerful message about conservation.
