The Deliverance of Dancing Bears is a beautifully illustrated contemporary fable about a dancing bear whose dreams of freedom keep her spirit alive despite the pain and degradation of her existence. Into this setting comes a noble-minded peasant who liberates the bear and reminds onlookers that the dignity of all living creatures must be respected. This is a book for young philosophers whose emerging awareness of the complexity of life is leading them to consider some of its great universals: good and evil, power and impotence, freedom and captivity. This award-winning story begins with the power of hope and ends with the challenge of liberation.
