written by Karin Blixt & illustrated by Mikael Sjömilla

homesick bear coverThe Chaffinch and the Bear – an odd couple but still the best of friends! When the autumn comes it’s time for the Chaffinch to fly south and for the Bear to find a place to hibernate. But that’s easier said than done. Despite the help from the services of he Mole’s Read Estate Agency it seems almost impossible to find a home for the winter.

A wonderful book challenging the norm that all the big dangerous animals always are male. And the small and cute so often is a she.  In this book the big bear is a she and the small bird is a he.
