Description

Are you brave enough to enter the Wild Bear Woods? Polly Pecorino rescues animals, and she can talk to them too.

She spends all of her time caring for those at Happy Days Zoo, where the devious owners, Mr and Mrs Snell, will do anything to make money.

One day they steal a bear cub, certain that he will do wonders for ticket sales, but the ferocious bears living in Wild Bear Woods want their cub back.

Will Polly be brave enough to stand up to the Snells and take Booboo, the bear cub, back where he belongs?”[G]o down to the woods for a gentle bear story…

This divinely illustrated book begs to become a series…

Expect growls of approval.” The Times, Children’s Book of the Week

“A perfect book. Booboo is now one of my favourite bears, sitting right alongside Paddington and Winnie the Pooh. This story has lots and lots of heart.” Carlie Sorosiak, author of I, Cosmo

“Heart-warming, quietly exciting, encouraging, thoughtful and most of all, charming; a wonderful story with a real classic feel.” Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories Blog
