Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The author and artist...poetically and artistically portray a grizzly's birth and coming of age. Publishers Weekly

...young readers will be drawn...to the combination of learning and fun...The book's implicit plea for wilderness preservation is eloquent. Booklist

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The author and artist who produced The Eyes of Gray Wolf here poetically and artistically portray a grizzly's birth and coming of age. Borrowing nicknames given to brown bears by native peoples of Eurasia, London's narrative reflects a time-honored awe of the powerful creatures. When Honey Paw meets Old Man of the Mountains, "It was June, the mating moon of grizzlies,/ and that night, under stars,/ the two great bears/ became a pair." Soon after they part company, Honey Paw gives birth to Lightfoot, "a furry ball of hunger" whose adventures fill the rest of the tale. Bear fur, spring slush, river falls-Van Zyle's painterly illustrations capture these textures in full-bleed spreads somewhat reminiscent of Ted Rand's work. Similarly, the rhythms of London's carefully structured verse create simple yet affecting images of the natural world. An eloquent and informative endnote decries the threat of extinction of Ursus arctos. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)

Read an Excerpt

If Lightfoot strayed, Honey Paw swatted him back into line.
But not all was the business of finding food; mother and cub liked to play.

Swoosh! Honey Paw and Lightfoot plunged down the slopes skidding to a stop in a shower of slush.
Again and again¬—swoosh!—sliding on belly,
back, and rump, rolling head over tail.
