Little Polar Bear Finds a Friend

By Hans de Beer
Illustrated by Hans de Beer

While searching for someone to play with, Lars gets caught in a trap and finds himself in a cargo plane destined for a zoo.

Luckily, his cage breaks open. With the help of a huge walrus, Lars sets the other animals free—including a cute brown bear named Bea. As the animals run away from the airport, the poor walrus is left behind. True friends, Lars and Bea bravely go back to help, narrowly escaping the animal traders. But after they all escape, Bea is crying—she’ll never find her parents again. When Lars happily invites her to join his family, she is worried because her fur isn’t the same color. “What difference does that make?” says Lars. “Bears are bears!” Back in print, fans of the Little Polar Bear books will find humour and heart in this story about new friendships.
