The spare, emotionally powerful story of a circus bear who finally breaks free is told with simple narration and intense, expressive illustrations. This deeply affecting tale of a bear who escapes cruelty to find a mythical release will resonate with all who love animals, while offering a universal message about freedom and dignity. Illustrations.
An abused circus bear frees herself in this splendidly illustrated and sparingly written picture book. Day after day, a bear listlessly wilts in an uncomfortable cage, forced to dance for jeering crowds each evening with a circus. But one night, she refuses to dance, roaring wildly instead. Seizing the moment, the bear begins a journey that leads the way to freedom and joy.


"At the beginning, minimal text is on every left-hand page along with sketchy drawings of the bear, while the right has full-color pictures. Near the story's end, the pictures encroach on the left-hand pages, getting progressively larger until the text is gone. Subtle-yet spectacular and deeply moving." 06/15/2011
