Iris and Issac are NOT FRIENDS. Off they stomp, in a big huff, as far away from each other as possible. And as they stomp, they see funny, strange and wonderful things. If only the were together to share them...
In this sweet story about friendship, Catherine Rayner's wonderful depictions of her ursine heroes are elegant yet also playful and child-like (not least in their initial stroppiness and obstinacy). Her gorgeous images also perfectly capture the serene beauty of the natural landscape and its soft dreamy colours, from the dark blue-green shades of an echoey cave to the magical glow creating by the Aurora Borealis Northern lights.
