There are no polar bears left on Bear Island. At least, that’s what April’s father tells her when his scientific research takes them to this remote Arctic outpost for six months. But one endless summer night, April meets one. He is starving, lonely and a long way from home. Determined to save him, April begins the most important journey of her life…



very emotional moving so sweet when she first meets the bear

it was good. I think this book is about people who are on an adventure to bear island. I like April the girl. it was a little bit factual it taught me that if you show kindness to animals they will not harm you. I wouldn't recommend it

this book was good because the was a poor family and their mom died long time ago and this family wanted to travel to the north pole to see the polar bears because they were running out and by the time they got there there was only 1 left and they were abandoned and her dad died of higpothermia this book was sad and cool I love it

Absolutely amazing book. It is about sadness, grief and new beginnings. After April's dad gets a letter to go the Arctic Circle for a few months he accepts and they catch a boat to Bear Island. Despite the name, there are no bears on this island due to global warming, or so everyone thought...

It is about a girl and her father going to an island called Bear Island. They thought bears were already extinct. but the girl finds a lonely, huge polar bear. And she found something interesting on him then the story is about the friendship between them. But it really is a very good story. I will recommend this one to kids.

This book is fiction, I really enjoyed it I would recommend it to people who like heart warming adventure full of danger and mystery. My favourite character was bear because he was brave on the island for many years and he saved April and made it home.

It was a fantastic book in which a girl called April has to find the last polar bear and save it. She becomes friends with it and has to take it back to its home which is the only place there are still polar bears.

This story is about a girl who ends up living on Bear Island, where there aren't supposed to be any bears anymore. But then she sees a polar bear. The bear is starving because there is nothing to hunt on Bear Island. So she goes on a big journey to save it.

I loved it cause I love animals. She cleared up the beach of plastic which was really good as it’s important to keep the animals safe and make sure they are not hurt. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves animals

It was a inspirational book with beautiful language. I liked April best because she is so fond and understanding of animals. I would recommend it to someone else because there are pictures.
