When a polar bear arrives unexpectedly in the woods, the other animals fear and avoid him, suspecting him to be dangerous - and his odd 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 colourful leaves... trying to get back home. Perhaps he isn't so different after all?

Review quote

Leaf draws on themes about the environment, prejudice against those who seem different and learning to communicate, illustrated in a way which combines the naturalistic and the fantastic. * CLPE * The balance of whimsical colors and deep blue ocean sets this book apart. * Ravaliabhiram on Instagram * This is a really lovely story with an important message and the illustrations are simply stunning. * Hookable_books on Instagram * A lovely story about difference, fear and resilience. * @bees_circus on Instagram * The way key environmental messages are entwined with the themes of community and acceptance is masterful. * @brassoteach on Twitter * This is such a gorgeous story with not only beautiful and striking illustrations but such a meaningful message (.) A definite must read! -- @thewilsonuk on Instagram
