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?

«A delightful, old-fashioned story about Polly, a girl who can talk to animals, her companion crow and her friendship with a baby bear in a zoo. It’s a book to entrance young readers with the perennially appealing idea of communicating with other species, and with the message that kindness can triumph.»

«[G]o down to the woods for a gentle bear story…This divinely illustrated book begs to become a series…I enjoyed this gentle story and found her illustrations divine: Mrs Snell is a perfectly sculpted, minimalist Cruella de Vil, the adult bears are fabulously fierce, the baby bears visually vulnerable. Expect growls of approval.»
