The Woman Who Married a Bear
Elizabeth James (Retold by); Atanas Matsoureff (Illustrator)
This tale of the woman who is forced to marry a bear after mocking the species will strike UK readers as both familiar and unfamiliar. The specifics of the tale are new and unusual, but the theme of fairness and retribution-for-actions is firmly in the tradition of the best-known folk tales such in England, such as Hansel and Gretel, and indeed, all of the works of The Brothers Grimm . Beautifully rendered watercolour pictures will inspire a sense of wonder at nature in children, as the misty seashores of the Pacific NorthWest are revealed in all of their wonder.
