There’s a brand new book from the bestselling author of The House With Chicken Legs, Sophie Anderson. The book is illustrated by Kathrin Honesta.
The book is called The Girl Who Speaks Bear and is out now.
“They call me Yanka the Bear. Not because of where I was found – only a few people know about that. They call me Yanka the Bear because I am so big and strong.”
Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered where she is from.
She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, wishing she was as strong on the inside as she is on the outside.
When Yanka has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond one that she ever imagined begins – from icy rivers to smouldering mountains, meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way.
Interwoven with fairy tales of bears, princesses and dragons, Yanka’s journey is a gorgeously lyrical adventure.
