Spirit Bear By Jill Harrington and illustrated by Michael Arnott is the story of Annuk, a young spirit bear cub happily growing up in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. Annuk learns what it means to be different when he discovers that he is white instead of black, like the rest of his family. He is a spirit bear, born with pure white fur from head to toe. One day, while testing his fishing skills, he slips and falls into the river and is swept downstream, far from the safety of his mother. Alone and lost, Annuk must make his way home through the many challenges and dangers of the rainforest. Along the way he is befriended by Kaya, a young sea wolf cub who knows the forest well, and helps him to escape the predators he encounters on his way back to his family. An entertaining story for kids of all ages!
