Rachel Fulton Brown; 8 x 11 x 0.25 in; Hardcover, 78 pages
The open sea calls God's creatures to a great adventure! In their polar fjord surrounded by the glory of the northern Aurora, four young bears are visited by their friend-an eccentric albatross named Abner-and called to follow him on the winds to the ends of the earth, to discover the unknown land of the Southern Lights. As the bears sail towards the antipodes, they discover danger, friends, and foes along the way. The bears must work together to overcome their fears and unveil the mystery of the Aurora Australis. In the mythical tradition of C.S. Lewis's Narnia Chronicles, this is a tale for children who dare to imagine the world beyond the great Ice Wall. Visit dragoncommonroom.com for a sneak preview!
