Lonely Alma longs to explore the lush forest beyond her narrow town, but her uncle has told her it's full of fearsome beasts. One night, she ventures into the trees and finds a frightened bear cub. The two become friends but the rest of the town is not so welcoming. Soon, Alma and Star Bear are forced to set off in search of a place to call home.A lyrical tale about a tender friendship that triumphs over fear, with colour illustrations on every page.
