Description

 

See below for English description.

Franchir des rivières tumultueuses, gravir des montagnes imposantes et traverser des forêts pleines d’arbres gigantesques : Oh! Vivre la vie d’un ours! Mais quand cet ours est transporté dans un autre monde, il réalise qu’on ne tombe pas toujours au bon endroit. Pourtant, parfois, la vie est exaltante, palpitante et mouvementée comme un vol de papillon, plus rapide que l’imagination. Cet ours réussira-t-il à trouver son chemin?

Préparez-vous à bondir d’une vie à l’autre en accompagnant cet ami à fourrure dans son parcours étonnant. Cette histoire délicate met en lumière les changements de la vie auxquels nous faisons face et la façon dont nous pouvons nous en accommoder.

 

Traversing through rushing rivers, mighty mountains, and forests full of tall trees: oh, to live the life of a bear! But when this bear is catapulted from one world into another, he realizes that we don’t always tumble and land in perfect places. We may feel that life is soaring, skipping, and fluttering like a butterfly, faster than we can imagine. Will this bear manage to find his way? Get ready to tumble from one life to another as you accompany this furry friend on his special journey through life.

This delicately imagined story beautifully highlights the changes we go through in life, and our innate powers of adaptation. A lyrical book, describing universal feelings with unique details and elements.

Original title: Once I Was a Bear
