Editorial Reviews

"This book is highly educational without seeming so. The text is concise and interesting, and the illustrations are subtle and captivating. The glossary, map, and notes on black bears and Chinook salmon in the back of the book are an additional bonus for older children.""San Francisco Book Review“There is science aplenty here—in the season-by-season growth and development of the cub—all fascinating stuff for junior biologists, but it's the art, both prose and painting, that takes this book to a fine and high plateau. In an example of perfect complementarity, author and illustrator have worked their magic: Maggie de Vries deftly weaves an engrossing and often suspenseful tale out of the facts, while Renné Benoit's paintbrush provides full-colour visuals of bear, salmon, river, meadow and forest, which make the spirit soar.”Globe & Mail
