"A gentle yet soaring story from Ali Standish."
Lonely Alma longs to explore the lush forest that surrounds her narrow town. One night, she sets off into the trees and finds a frightened bear cub. The two become best friends but not everyone is so welcoming. Alma is forced to make a difficult choice and together she and Star Bear set off on a journey of discovery in search of a place to call home.
A lyrical, thought-provoking tale about a tender friendship that triumphs over fear.
