Product description

Be whisked away into an Arctic wilderness and explore the majestic landscapes of the frozen North in this beautiful pair of classic Morpurgo nature tales, Rainbow Bear and Little Albatross. When a polar bear grows tired of being a white creature in a snow white landscape, he dreams of soaking himself in all the colours of the rainbow. Will his wish be granted? Next, a little albatross finally grows big enough for his mother and father to leave him at home alone. But danger threatens from a hungry enemy… Told with all of Michael Morpurgo’s lyrical power, these wondrous stories capture the snowy magic of the North Pole and the wild creatures there.

    I have read this book over and over again, and even though it may not be the longest book in the world, it is still a great book about animals that live surrounded by snow. I would recomend this mostly to younger readers.
