Opening Lines: The long, dark winter was over at last! The sun shone down on the village under Blue Mountain, where Brave was getting ready for her very first hunting trip.
Synopsis: In the cold and icy white of her homeland, Brave embarks on a hunting trip – and as day turns to night, she finds herself on an unexpected adventure with danger, discovery and, most of all, magic.
Why I like this: The beautifully illustrated cover is what first attracted me to this sweet story. The illustrations throughout the story are rich and and sweet giving it a magical feel. This inspiring story of courage and determination of a young girl left alone in the freezing snow, faces danger but with the help of a fox manages to make her way home again, a heart-warming story, there is also extra information at the back with child-friendly facts about some of the environmental issues faced in the Arctic today.
