PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An orphaned polar bear struggles for survival. Based on a true story, Waiting for Ice follows an orphaned polar bear cub as she struggles to find food on Wrangel Island, far north in the Arctic Ocean. Left alone at ten months old, the young female finds herself up against other bears who are bigger and stronger than she is - and just as hungry. Due to rising temperatures, the bears are trapped on the island until the ice packs reform. Only then can they venture out to hunt for seals and whales, using the ice as life rafts. In their sixth collaboration, Sandra Markle and Alan Marks effectively portray the gravity of a significant worldwide issue - global warming. Back matter includes further information about how polar bears are affected by the earth's climate change, facts about these land carnivores, as well as background information on Tuff, the resilient polar bear cub on whom Waiting for Ice is based.
