Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Nanu is a polar bear cub who learns about survival in the arctic from her mother. Simultaneously, Seela is a baby walrus learning about survival from her mother. The two young animals confront many common dangers as they hunt and compete for food in the changing Arctic climate. This moving story chronicles the lives of both Nanu and Seela from their births up to the time of their pending adulthood. Their struggles in adapting to life in a warmer climate are both sad and alarming. As the Arctic conditions change, so too, do all of the animals that live there. Nanu and Seela are fictional characters created from actual film taken in the Arctic. This book is touted as the "companion to the major motion picture" of the same title that is now available on DVD. This book is extremely poignant, educational and entertaining. It tells an emotional and inspired story while informing readers of the changing environmental conditions caused by global warming. Reviewer: Denise Daley
