Lovely story about the friendship between 2 polar bears. The story finishes as it started, and in the middle the two go solo only to get back together stonger and happier. I liked the way the author brings alive the different personalities of the bears: the bold and adventurous one who wants to explore other games, while the other bear is content to play snowballs all the time. Paeony Lewis explores real emotions, such as frustration, discord, loneliness, friendship. I particularly liked the way Suka's snowball, which hits Nanook's nose, was one snowball too many and that this was the trigger for Nanook and Suka falling out.That's so true to life! But just as it should be, the end is a happy one and the 2 bears realize they missed each other and that friendship isn't one sided.
