Description

When a polar bear arrives unexpectedly in the woods, the animals fear and avoid him, suspecting him to be dangerous - and his habit of collecting leaves only adds to their distrust. Then one day, they watch as he attempts to fly over the water with wings made of colorful leaves...just trying to go home. Maybe he needs some help?

Review quote

A timely story, one that yields multiple interpretations and meanings, from the "othering" of unfamiliar populations and those seeking refuge from a changing world to the impacts of climate change.
Dieckmann beautifully weaves together some of today's most difficult themes into a deceptively simple tale.
--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW A beautiful debut from Flying Eye [...] the intricate images, filled with polychromatic leaf-patterns and dynamic stillness, are too good to miss.
--The Guardian
