Description

Bathalzar is the world's greatest violin-playing polar bear. At least, he used to be the greatest. Now he's the only polar bear left in all the world's circuses. He misses his home and his friends, but above all he misses his Grandpa Balthazar, who gave him his first violin. One day, Balthazar is set free. He sets off on an epic journey home, and eventually, after travelling across mountains, oceans and deserts, he sees a familiar face...  This visually stunning picture book about the world's greatest violin-playing polar bear and his epic journey home from the circus features beautiful illustrations kids will love and sensitively explores themes of displacement, polar bear habitats and being far from home.
