The Last Polar Bears

Grandfather is off on an expedition to the North Pole to find the Last Polar Bears and with him goes Roo – a dog of character and strong views. The intrepid explorers set sail on the good ship Unsinkable and embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Eccentric, moving and very funny, their story is told through a series of extraordinary letters.

Our Review Panel says...

In this story Grandfather, together with his canine companion Roo, sets off on an Arctic expedition to find the last polar bears. The story is told through a series of letters from Grandfather to a grandchild, through which Grandfather gives a first hand account of the highs and lows of his exciting journey. We like the way in which this book balances an appropriate level of humour at Grandfather’s amusing escapades along with an underlying concern for the melting ice caps and the survival of creatures living in polar regions.
