About the book
Lars, a spunky little polar bear, discovers that humans have invaded his territory, his precious fishing bay, resulting in a grave depletion of fish that the animals so desperately need to survive. This is just not right! Bravely he steps forward to intervene and save the creatures that live there.
Isa a tern, and Robbie a seal, rally their family and friends to join Lars in this just cause and the war against injustice is on. They hatch successful plans to obliterate the human presence and send them packing thus restoring the wealth of food that the fishing bay provides for the animals.
The book introduces young readers to the perils of global warming and the dire consequences that can occur because of it. It also shines a light on how humans can disrupt the ecosystem causing the web and flow of animal life to become unbalanced and their very existence endangered. The book encourages and inspires those affected to rise up, take action and become a part of the solution to the problem before it is too late to act.
The author with his wonderful artwork and meaningful text has done an exemplary job of getting his message understood by kids and explaining to them that no matter how small or insignificant you think you are, your voice can be heard and you can make a difference in your world.
Hans de Beer was born in Muiden, a small town near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. He began to draw when he went to school, mostly when the lessons got too boring. In college, he studied history, but he was drawing so many pictures during the lectures that he decided to become an artist. He went on to study illustration at the Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam . Hans de Beer's Little Polar Bear books enjoy great international success and have been published in eighteen languages in 27 countries.
