From the moment she saw him, she knew the bear had come for her.

How many times had she dreamt of the bear...Now, here he was, as if spelled from her dreams. "I will come with you, Bear," she said. It is the beginning of an extraordinary journey for the girl.

First to the bear's secret palace in faraway mountains, where she is treated so courteously, but where she experiences the bear's unfathomable sadness, and a deep mystery...As the bear's secret unravels, another journey unfolds...a long and desperate journey, that takes the girl to the homes of the four Winds and beyond, to the castle east of the sun, west of the moon. This beautiful, mysterious story of love, loyalty and above all, freedom, is inspired by fairy tale, and is magically told and illustrated by Jackie Morris.

I normally love the story with the girl and the girl and the polar bear (The polar bear king, East and ect) but this book was not good at all. The writing style was horrible and was repetitive. The girl tries so hard to be with the polar bear, and then ends up with someone else!
