Little Polar Bear and the Brave Little Hare by Hans de Beer

Lars leaned nervously over the edge. Down at the bottom sat a small hare, shivering with fear.

“Don’t be afraid,” Lars said to him. “I will help you.”

The little hare’s eyes grew large as Lars pushed down a heap of snow, but then he understood, and with a hop-hop-hop he was free!

On a quiet day in the Arctic, Lars, the little polar bear, hears a cry coming from a deep hole in the ice. It’s Hugo, a scared little hare, who is trapped and needs to be rescued. The two become fast friends with Lars teasing Hugo for being timid and Hugo wishing Lars was just a little more careful! Lars lands himself in trouble, Hugo has to show just how brave he can be in an emergency.

Lars gains a new friend in his latest adventure…Such teamwork and fond friendship will win readers’ hearts while the falling snow and expensive faces will dazzle their eyes.” Kirkus Reviews.
