Three bears...one future. This amazing book is told from different points of view, and depicts the world of three bears. I think there are many things both we and the main characters can learn from this book! Lusa: Ever since she was born, Lusa has lived in captivity. The young black bear doesn’t know what the world outside her cage looks like—but she doesn’t mind...most of the time. With family, friends, and all the food she could eat, her life is good. Except for one thing: She has often wondered what it would be like to live in the wild, fending for herself...and there is something inside her that tells her to leave everything she has ever known, and go into the wilderness.
Then, Lusa meets a brown bear named Oka, who tells her to escape and deliver a message to her son, Toklo. But how will she do it? Escaping seems impossible. And she must have what it takes to leave.
Toklo: Toklo’s cubhood has always been turbulent—but it gets even harder now. Alone, lost, and wandering, his only companion is a shape-shifting brown bear named Ujurak, who knows where they should go next. His mother left him a long time ago, but Toklo doesn’t know where she went. His brother had also died, and he has been grieving ever since. Moving on from the past is hard—and facing the future is even harder! Can he do it? The answer is closer than he thought.
But then, his life is changed. He must travel through the distant, snow-covered land, all in search of a place where he will find answers to his biggest questions.
Kallik: A young polar bear cub named Kallik and her brother, Taquiq, live in a cozy den with their mother. They have always been happy and safe, with a place that’s all to themselves. But both of them want to explore the world outside their den...and when they sneak out one day, Kallik is separated from Taquiq and thrust into a fight for survival. And when her mother goes missing, she doesn’t know what to do. Her life is at stake. She must survive. Can the bears follow their destiny? Read this book to find out!
