Synopsis

Dino Buzzati's classic tale chronicles the terrible winter that sent the starving bears down into the valley in search of food, as well as their struggles with an army of wild boars, a wily professor who may or may not be a magician, snarling Marmoset the Cat, and, worse still, treachery within their own ranks. Over all this, the bears triumph with bravery, ingenuity, humility, and high spirits.

The allegory of the bears, lovable rough barbarians, who invaded Sicily and were corrupted by men, will appeal perhaps as much to the adult who shares it with a child of ten and up, as to the child, who may read it simply as a fantasy.
