How far would you go to help a stranger?
When Sebastian the bear is discovered on Dogwood Island, no one is quite sure what to do with him. This quiet island off the coast of British Columbia is not a place for a bear - the most dangerous animal on the island is a seagull with an unusually large appetite. Will the circus, where Sebastian has worked almost all his life, come back and get him? Should he be sent to a zoo? What if this lonely bear cannot find a place to go?
Enter Sugar and Clive. Sugar, a medium sized dog with caramel coloured curls, and her best friend Clive the barn swallow, are not shy about saying yes to adventure. Determined to help Sebastian in any way they can, dog and bird recruit their friends to try to get Sebastian off the island to a wild place, where he belongs.
From award-winning author Alexandra Amor comes a story that animal lovers of all ages will adore, about friendship, courage and what it means to be free. Fans of Charlotte's Web and 101 Dalmatians will love this story and will laugh out loud at the lengths Sebastian's new friends will go to help him.
