At the start of winter, two bear cubs are born, deep in their den in the frozen north.
“Mama, what lies beyond here?” they ask their mother.
“‘Above us is a land of ice and snow.”
“What lies beyond the ice and snow?” they ask.
“Beyond the snow is the ocean, full of ice from long ago.”
And as the earth dances on her toes and the nights get longer, the little bear cubs learn from their mother the secrets of the earth and their place in it, while their Mama whispers, “You’re snug with me”.
From the acclaimed picture-book partnership of Poonam Mistry and Chitra Soundar, comes You’re Snug With Me, a lyrical bedtime tale with charming illustrations.
Their previous book, You’re Safe With Me (Lantana, 2018), was selected as The Children’s Book of the Month by the Guardian, and was featured by The Bookseller in their Children’s Previews by editor Fiona Noble.
