A fresh take on a classic concept: an ABC and story book combined in one! Canada is a big country to travel across without your favorite bear by your side, but that's just what 4-year-old Sophie has to do! Unable to find Bear as Sophie and her dad prepare to leave Newfoundland to visit her grandmother in British Columbia, Sophie must brave traveling across the giant country without her trusted companion. After Bear emerges from under Sophie's bed, he realizes what's happened and sets off on his own adventure: chasing after Sophie. The cat and mouse, or rather girl and bear, game that ensues is a madcap ABC adventure across Canada that takes the two separated pals through all 13 provinces and territories. Along the way, Sophie and Bear encounter all sorts of animals, people, sights, sounds, and tastes of Canada. From a bowl of chowder in Nova Scotia to a polar bear in Nunavut, the whole country is in on the trip. Illustrator Sean L. Moore uses a sophisticated and fresh color palette, iconic images, and detailed backgrounds to bring this warm and contemporary Canadian story to life.
