pdf epub fb2 djvu



There was a young girl named Halva up in Finnmark who found a white bear cub alone in the woods...Halva takes the cub home, where they name her Sister Bear. Not only does Sister Bear hunt for the family and protect Halva, but she likes to dance while Halva plays the flute. Halva decides to show off Sister Bear to the king of Denmark. But on their journey, they run into trouble with some big, ugly, hungry trolls, and Halva learns just how lucky she is to have a loving friend like Sister Bear. Author Jane Yolen, often called "the Hans Christian Anderson of America" for her work in fairy tales, is perfectly matched with illustrator Linda Graves, whose richly detailed art is rendered in pastel, colored pencil, and watercolor.
