Polar Bear and the UFO is a 34 page rhyming story that contains two elements kids love: stories about polar bears and UFOs! The story begins in the frostiest reaches of the Arctic Circle, where a polar bear lies next to a hole in the ice waiting for a seal. When a passing UFO offers a super interstellar cosmic buffet, Polar Bear and UFO embark on a foraging journey through space. Turns out, space food doesn’t taste anything like seal.
