SUMMARY: Luna loves living in the snow. But she loves her polar bear friend, Bear, even more. One day, Bear discovers a beautiful golden flower growing in the snow and gives it to Luna. But when the flower dies, and Luna is sad, Bear goes on a search around the world for another to bring to Luna. When he returns home, he realizes that Luna is his greatest treasure and the he is hers. And that they are happiest when together.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrator does a wonderful job of making a predominantly white setting look interesting and fun. There are plenty of adorable and funny details along the way that add interest.

THE GOOD: This is a lovely story of friendship between a girl and her polar bear. When the going gets tough, they both do something in a big way for the other to prove their love and friendship, but they also realize that being together is by far the most meaningful thing they could do.
THE NOT AS GOOD: The writing does tend to run on without pausing at times, causing the sentences to be too complex. For instance:
"Luna lived in an igloo...
...and Bear lived in a snow cave in her little garden where, one bright day, something most unusual popped up."
