by Hannah Gold, hardback £12.99 for 7–12-year-olds (reviewed by Octavia)

This book should definitely be enjoyed with a hot chocolate. Another incredible debut children’s novel. The Last Bear truly portrays the devastation of climate change- some of our most beloved animals will soon be no more. This book tells the story of a very brave girl and a lonely lost polar bear. Their friendship and the obstacles they face make for an emotional and everlasting adventure story. This is a must-read for all young eco warriors, animal lovers and their parents too. I loved it!
