A SKY FOR THE BEARS
A bear who, after tucking into a good square meal following a long period of hibernation, decides he’d really like to become a Dad. After a long search, it seems the answer lies in the sky... A little bear who is very sad, following the death of his grandfather. When his Mum tells him that his Grandad was very tired and is now very happy in the sky for the bears, he sets into the wide world... For both protagonists, the infinity of the sky seems to be the only place that holds the answers to their questions. They then discover that it’s on Earth, close by, where they’ll find the solution. In fact, the bear finds it through a lovely she-bear who appears before him and guesses straight away what he’s got in mind. The little bear, however, finds his answer in the comforting certainties found in family affections. A Sky for the Bears tackles delicate and profound themes lightly and tactfully in the simplest of ways.
