When Lars, the little polar bear, rescues a husky puppy trapped in a deep crack in the ice, the little dog follows him and soon finds himself in trouble again. Howling pitifully, the puppy begs, “Please don’t leave me! I’m hungry and I want my mother!” So once again, it’s Lars to the rescue. But can he get the impetuous pup back safely to the rest of the husky team? Fans of Hans de Beer’s engaging Little Polar Bear won’t want to miss this exciting adventure.
