Where the water churns with salmon, thick and rich with leaping fishes, there the brown bear stands and catches the wild king of the river.
With stunning watercolour paintings, this lyrical picture book - shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal - describes eight bears from all over the world, all shown in their wild habitats: Black Bear, Polar Bear, Sloth Bear, Spectacle Bear, Sunbear, Panda, Moonbear, Brown Bear.
But which is the best bear of all? Your own teddy bear of course
