    DescriptionWhen twelve-year-old Tam is sent to work at a bear farm in the city, he has never felt so alone. He hates seeing the cruel way the bears are treated, but speaking up will mean losing his job. And if he can't send money home, how will his family survive? When a sick cub arrives at the farm, Tam secretly nurses it back to health and they develop an unbreakable bond. Tam swears to return his beloved cub to the wild, but how will they ever find a way to be free? Deeply moving and powerful, Moon Bear is an unforgettable story of compassion, hope, and bravery against overwhelming odds.

    Review quote
    Moving, gripping and full of well-drawn, convincing characters, this is a powerful and inspirational book. The Daily Mail She writes an utterly convincing story of ursine - and human - behaviour. Guardian, Mary Hoffman (Gill Lewis) is most definitely a writer to watch Fiona Noble, Children's Bookseller Gill Lewis is an expert storyteller Red House "...a tale of friendship and moral courage..." Martine Chilton, Telegraph Online "This is an eye opening, educational experience for young readers, which provides a wealth of information about bears in Asia...Moon Bear purifies a potentially miserable story with a natural magic and several beautiful friendships" www.welovethisbook.com "It packs in adventure, love, loyalty, betrayal and an education in south-east Asian history. This is a cracking read, and Gill Lewis' moral compass points to true north." Kitty Empire, Observer "A moving animal adventure beautifully told, and perfect for fans of Michael Morpurgo."
