SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2021 CARNEGIE MEDAL"Written with passion and compassion, Anderson's talent as a weaver of magic and creator of evocative landscapes is growing with every book." - The Daily Mail"Enchanting story." - The Daily TelegraphThey call me Yanka the Bear.

Not because of where I was found - only a few people know about that.

They call me Yanka the Bear because I am so big and strong. Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered about where she is from.

She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, wishing she was as strong on the inside as she is on the outside.

But, when she has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond one that she ever imagined begins: from icy rivers to smouldering mountains meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way. Interwoven with traditional stories of bears, princesses and dragons, Yanka's journey is a gorgeously lyrical adventure from the best-selling author of The House With Chicken Legs.
