Product Description

Review

Praise for The Sea of Tranquility:

‘A touching recollection, evocatively illustrated, of a child’s-eye view of the moon and the excitement and wonder he felt when the first moon landing took place.’ Guardian

‘It is back to July 16 1969 for Mark Haddon’s The Sea of Tranquility. Apollo II’s giant leap for mankind is re-lived through the wondering imagination of a small boy and Christian Birmingham’s dream-like celestial pastels. ‘Financial Times

‘The deliciously enchanting text is complemented by Christian Birmingham’s exquisite pastel illustrations, which capture the awe and mystery that the moon had for this small boy.’ Books for Keeps

The extraordinary dream quality of the illustrations … give this book a real feel of awe and wonder. A terrific book…’ Junior Education

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a magical story about three children, who wake up to find their village is covered with a blanket of snow. As the school bus cannot get to them, what else is there to do but explore this familiar world, which suddenly looks so different? As they set out, dad tells them that they may come across the Ice Bear’s cave – a secret bear who lives below the deepest snowdrifts. Is he telling the truth, or is it just a fairy tale?

Although this is a lovely story, especially in the cold, wintery weather, the really superb thing about the book has to be the illustrations. These are stunning and really help create that feeling of being in a winter wonderland, where anything can happen. A lovely bedtime story.

The Ice Bear's Cave is a lovely book to read with a little one on a cold winter's day; the illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful (they come out just fine on the Kindle) and the story is very nice.

Alice, Jess and Robin are delighted one morning to find a heavy snowfall has occurred while they were sleeping. They head out to play and explore in the snow and chance upon the magical Ice Bear...

My niece was enchanted with this book and made me read it to her three times in a row! A wonderful children's book, the pictures have a nostalgic feel to them, highly recommended.
