Long, long ago in the icy lands of the far north, a hunter and his wife cared for an orphaned bear-child. But when the child wanders off, there are consequences for both animals and people. Set in the pristine regions of the Arctic, acclaimed author/illustrator Jackie Morris’ captivating illustrations and lyrical text remind us that we are caretakers of wild creatures, and that our actions affect the future.
Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs and cats. Ever since leaving college, Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat Pixie sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about. Among her many books for Frances Lincoln are The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, Tell me a Dragon, and How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes.
