Synopsis

A polar bear cub . . . A nighttime journey . . . A bedtime story of love and wonder.


One keen, clear night, a polar bear cub wakes inside her warm den. Something in the moonlit stillness quietly beckons. What is it?

The little cub sets out for the snow and sky and sea and ice, and the moon follows.

So begins a magical journey through a starlit world filled with love and wonder. Soothing words and luminous pictures make this nighttime tale as comforting as a goodnight kiss.
