The Little White Bear
Originally written and illustrated by Enid Marx in 1945, The Little White Bear tells the tale of Ivan, the friendly polar bear, and his exciting adventures in the snow. After accidentally jumping on a boat of stranded wartime sailors Ivan makes some unlikely friendships, becoming their lucky charm in the search to get the sailors home safely. Along the way Ivan sneaks into an igloo, rescues his new friend Marcus from a great whale, helps hunt for seals and fish until finally a plane saves the day just in time for a Christmas party.
The Little White Bear is published, along with The Pigeon Ace and Fifty-four Conceits, to coincide with the exhibition `Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship' at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne, opening May 2017.
