Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Join Lars, the lovable character from A Little Polar Bear Story for yet another one of his exciting adventures. Lars, his family, and his friends are all getting along nicely. The seals keep providing fish for everyone so that nobody goes hungry and everything is peaceful, at least until the fish stop coming. When this happens, everybody blames the villagers for taking more than their fair share. Lars and his best friend Robby go to investigate. They discover that the villagers have no fish either, and that there is something dangerous in the waters. A huge, black ship is the culprit for swallowing everything in its path. See how Lars uses his courage and the help of his friends to save everyone from a grim fate of starvation. This book is complemented with beautiful illustrations and lovable characters. It also includes color stickers of the characters so that young readers can maybe even make up their own "Lars" story. 2003 (orig. 2001), Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 5 to 8.
