I had the idea of writing a book and suggested it to my younger daughter, Rebecca. “It’s a good idea,” my daughter said, “but the children's book must be about a penguin and a polar bear.”
“Okay,” I said, adding at the same time that the animals come from one another's poles. I put on my thinking hat, and the book Little Bear’s Journey was born.
The storyline: After Little Bear's mother dies, Grandpa Bear and Little Bear sail to the South Pole to find a place where there is a better life for them. There they meet Lucas, an emperor penguin, and together they go on an adventure where they catch fish with dolphins, meet killer whales, and sit on the back of a humpback whale.
Suitable for children aged 6-10 years.
