9780006646280: The Ice Bear's Cave

A magical story from Mark Haddon, author of the phenomenally best-selling 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time' When the children wake up one morning the air is silent and the room is full of soft blue light. "It's snowed!" says Alice. "It's like the North Pole!" It is the first big snowfall of the year and for Alice, Jess and Robin it means a day off school. They can't wait to to put on their scarves and hats, woolly gloves and wellingtons and go out to dig, play and explore. But before they go Dad gives them a warning: "You might just come across the Ice Bear's cave." And so begins an icy adventure in which somewhere hidden under the deepest snowdrifts by the barn, sleeping and dreaming of Arctic skies and frozen seas, is the ICE BEAR!

About the Author:

Mark Haddon has written a number of successful picture books with HarperCollins, including Sea of Tranquility, illustrated by Christian Birmingham, and is best known for his novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. He lives in Oxford with his wife and two sons.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2--A heavy snowfall means Alice and her siblings get a day off from school. This calls for an expedition to the North Pole--or at least to the snowdrifts by the red barn. Then Dad suggests that they might come across the Ice Bear's Cave--or maybe that's just a fairy tale. After riding their sleds and having a snowball fight, the children dig a tunnel and discover the Ice Bear on the other side. He shares their lunch and describes his life in the frozen lands where he lives. After saying good-bye, the siblings arrive home, and their father encourages them to keep their adventure a secret. Readers will wonder whether the bear was real or imaginary. Axtell's impressionistic paintings have a dreamy quality that perfectly matches the tone of the text, which tells a story flavored with a bit of magic and mystery. A nice addition for libraries needing more winter tales, but not an essential purchase.--Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA
