Leaf

By Sandra Dieckmann

Crow saw it first. The strange white creature, carried upon the dark waves towards the shore...

When a polar bear arrives unexpectedly in the woods, the other animals fear and avoid him, suspecting him to be dangerous – and his odd habit of collecting leaves only adds to their distrust. Then one day, they watch as he attempts to fly over the water with wings made of colourful leaves... trying to get back home. Perhaps he isn't so different after all?

  • A heart-warming story about accepting and helping outsiders, with detailed, bright and magical illustrations.
  • Touches on the issue of climate change, in particular the destruction of polar bears' habitats due to the melting ice.
  • Sandra is a talented and hard-working young artist with thousands of fans and followers. This will be her first picture book.
