Synopsis

A polar bear cub explores her artic world and finds something new--a friend. Companion to New York Times Best Illustratedbook /New York Times bestselling book.

On a chill, bright morning, a polar bear cub awakes inside her cozy den. She hears the seagulls' far-away calls and clambers out into the day.

Suddenly a snowy something tumbles down a little snow hill. She sees a snowy face, snowy paws, and snowy fur. What can it be?

Thrilling words and glowing pictures make this morning-time tale of first friendship as satisfying as a warm hug.
