Their long journey is about to begin . . .
Kallik is a young polar bear, happy to travel with her mother and brother across the ice toward land and eager to arrive before burn-sky, when the ice will melt.
At the same time, grizzly bear cub Toklo and his family journey over a mountain toward the salmon river, searching desperately for food. Toklo's brother, Tobi, is sick, and their mother presses Toklo to travel farther and faster to bring Tobi to safety.
And, in the Bear Bowl of a zoo, young black bear Lusa plays, eats the sweet fruit tossed to her by keepers, and dreams of a life in the forest, where a small black bear can be quick and clever enough to outwit even the biggest enemy.
Fate is about to change these three bears' lives forever, bringing them amazing adventures and unexpected suffering, and finally setting their paws on a path toward a future they cannot yet imagine. . . .

I enjoy animal stories, even in the young adult variety. I can sometimes enjoy a bit of fantasy, however this for me was definitely for children. Just the covers on the Cat series drew me in. I felt the same about the Cat series & like to think that animals do talk, however sweet & fantastical, this was not on my list of read more.

Watership Down or my favorite, The Plague Dogs by Richard Adams is my ideal of animals talking, ok, call it fantasy.
