Catherine Simpson’s There Are No Polar Bears Here!, uses evocative repetition to relate the story of a child whom nobody believes. Despite her vehement insistence that a polar bear is appearing in the cove, Kerry is only vindicated when the polar bear attends the local bean supper as her guest. This book realistically portrays contemporary local dialect and idiom without indulging in overt sentimentality.

On a cold December day in 2013 Catherine Simpson received the phone call she had feared for years. Her little sister Tricia had been found dead in the farmhouse where she, Catherine and their sister Elizabeth were born – and where their family had lived for generations. Tricia was 46 and had been stalked by depression all her life. Yet mental illness was a taboo subject within the family and although love was never lacking, there was a silence at its heart. After Tricia died, Catherine found she had kept a lifetime of diaries.

Alice's life is dictated by her autistic son, Sam, who refuses to leave their remote Lancashire farm. Her only time 'off' is two hours in Lancaster on a Tuesday afternoon - and even that doesn't always pan out to be the break she needs. Husband Duncan brings Larry, a rootless wanderer, to the farm to embark on a money making scheme they've dreamed up. Alice is hostile but Larry beguiles Sam with tales of travel in the outside world and, soon, Alice begins to fall for him, too. By turns blackly comic, heart-breaking and heart-warming, Truestory looks.

  • There Are No Polar Bears Here is about young Kerry, who one day in May is picking partridgeberries on a hill in a Newfoundland cove. Her bucket is almost full when she looks up and spies a bear. "A polar bear. Jumpins!" Having learned about bears in school, Kerry reacts more calmly than perhaps many of us would. She simply pushes her berries towards the polar bear and then slowly backs away. She tells everyone she meets that she has seen a polar bear, but they all rebuff her claims with the same six words used as the book's title: "There are no polar bears here." The bear keeps showing up in the oddest spots, until Kerry finally figures out a way to prove everyone wrong. While I found it unusual that Kerry knew so much about polar bears when apparently the townsfolk had never seen one in their little community, I did enjoy the doggone determination of the polar bear in seeking out Kerry and her creativity in making his presence known to the doubters. Another wonderful aspect of There Are No Polar Bears Here is how naturally the Newfoundland dialect and traditions are interwoven into the entertaining story.

  • This outstanding read-aloud delights primary children and introduces them to life in a small fishing village in Newfoundland. First rate!
