The Very Very Far North Blog Tour Plus GIVEAWAY!

"Sometimes a day has a change of heart and decides to take you where you want to go."

The Very Very FAR North, written by Dan Bar-El,  illustrated by Kelly Pousette is a charming and witty story reminiscent of Winnie The Pooh. Duane is a curious bear who loves eating, napping, friends and adventures.  Compelling writing draws us in and introduces us to unique and relatable characters whose personality quirks remind us of  home. The illustrations only add to the allure of this fun middle grade read.
Book Synopsis
An inquisitive polar bear named Duane befriends an array of animals as he discovers where he belongs in this charming classic-in-the making that’s reminiscent of Winnie the Pooh.

In the Very, Very Far North, past the Cold, Cold Ocean and just below the hill that looks like a baby whale, you’ll find Duane and his friends.

Duane is a sweet and curious young bear who makes friends with everyone he meets—whether they’re bossy, like Major Puff the puffin, or a bit vain, like Handsome the musk ox, or very, very shy, like Boo the caribou. For these arctic friends, every day is a new adventure!
