the first of a series by the four? Wirters known as erin hunter. I didnt like the worrier series but i thought id give this one a read and tbh i quite liked it.

In this book erin introduces us to three bears one polar, one black and a grizzly all of which have their own story to tell.

The quest begins tells of how the different types of bears live and of the hardships they come by but at the same time as teaching us about the characters they have also created a good story that doesnt get boring.

The only issue i had was that some of the writing seemed patronising to the reader but keep in mind it is a book for 9+ and thus is written for that age group.

Astonishing! Erin Hunter starts the series with a book that gripped me with anticipation; not knowing a U-turn in the tale was lying in wait!

The book is all about three small bear cubs, all having to face their own individual problems. Guided by the Pathway Star, will these young bears survive on their own? Just read this book!

Kallik, a young polar bear cub, fascinated by her Mother's stories about the Pathway Star, is left devastated after her Mother, Nisa, is killed by Orca whales and her brother, Taqiq, runs in the opposite direction. She is torn between following the Pathway Star and finding her brother. But the world is a big place for a young bear to venture alone, frightened; and having to face the dangers of the Earth.

Kallik's story moved me to tears because she had nearly lost everything but kept going because she believed she could do it.

Lusa, a small black bear, enthralled by Oka's (you'll find out about her later) tales of the wild, leaves the zoo she has always called home to find Oka's lost cub. Lusa made a solemn vow to Oka that she would find her cub and tell him Oka had regretted leaving him. She is faced with the threats of the planet Earth; but the small, night-black bear doesn't give up despite leaving all her family, friends and most of all, the free food.

At the very end of the book she makes a jaw dropping discovery...

Toklo, a young Grizzly is overwhelmed when his sick brother Tobi dies before his eyes. Things go from bad to worse for this immature bear as his Mother Oka abandons him on the river bank. Alone, scared and thin as a twig, Toklo must travel unaccompanied until a flat face adopts him. Or is he a flat face? Toklo finds the flat face can do amazing things.

At first I was very apprehensive toward reading the seekers series as I am a huge warriors fan, and feared that stories of bears would not live up to warrior standards... I was wrong. This book is harrowing, painful, exciting and brilliant, capturing the views and lives of three young bears each on an individual quest. Well worth the read.

I stared reading this book because Erin Hunter wrote the long series of "Warriors" and I've read every book so far. It was much better than expected but there are a few things I feel aren't needed. Keep up the good work!

My eleven year old (who reads a lot) said this is the best book she's ever read. She was gripped from the start, took it to school to read, even put away the iPad to read it and finished it in a few days. She can't wait for the other five books.

Omg! I used to hate the look of Seekers, until I got the first three of the series. I started reading them and I spent all my b-day weekend reading-------Seekers!--------.

I love Toklo's story best, as it's quite interesting, Kallik's and Lusa 's stories were amazing but in my oppinion not as good.

Erin Hunter is an amzing author as she has sgorie of cats, Dogs and bears. I'd love if she made a rabbit or squirrel series cause I love the book/film watership down{ my rabbit is on my lap and my dog and cat are outside!}

A Kid's Review on 28 Oct. 2010
Format: Paperback
I bought seekers in WHsmith only because my friend was reading it and said that she liked it. Around that time i was more into vampire and horse books, so i never even looked at it until about six or seven months after buying it. When i finally sat down and started to read seekers i was pleasantly suprised. It was really intresting, had the odd scary bit and was cute and sad at the same time. The main characters are Kallik (polar bear) who's mother nisa was killed in the sea, Toklo (grizzly bear) who's mother oka abandoned him and Lusa (black bear) who ran away from the zoo after meeting Oka and promising to find her cub Toklo to tell him she was sorry. I would definitely recommend this to any kid 12 or under. The only problem was that sometimes it didn't move on much, other than that a great book!
