Overview

Polar bear cub Kallik and her brother, Taqqiq, live in a cozy den nestled into the side of a snowy hill. Their mother, Nisa, tells them stories of the great world beyond their little den: stories of other bears, endless snow, and flecks of ice in the sky called stars. Kallik and Taqqiq can't wait to explore everything, though Nisa says they're still too little to venture out. But when the two cubs sneak out one day, they discover some startling new things about life in the wild and make a new friend—whose life may be in danger!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
The first few pages of this book show a mother bear digging her cave. Once that is done, she looks at the sky to see the constellations telling a story. Her two cubs, Kallik and Taqqiq, enter the storyline. They have a lot of fun in the den and stay very comfortable. To pass the time, the mother bear tells wonderful stories about the outside world where some places have snow all the time and there are stars in the sky. Of course, the stories are so exciting that the two cubs want to go out and see everything. After all, they don't even know what a star is! Their mother tells them they are too young to go out on their own, but their day will come. Unfortunately, the cubs choose to sneak out of the cave and learn many things about the how life in the wild actually works. They make a new friend who is in danger and they have a decision to make. The author keeps the excitement going from the first to the last page of this delightful graphic novel. This style is perfect for reluctant readers, and the illustrations add much to the story. At the end of the book, the author includes seventeen pages of text about the next book in this series. This is a well thought out book, and readers will be waiting for the next on to come out.
