It's a big day for the little polar bear Lars! His father takes him hunting for the very first time, and that night he is so tired from all his lessons that he falls fast asleep. He sleeps so soundly that he doesn't hear the ice crack, doesn't feel himself slowly drift away from his father and the North Pole - he doesn't realize that his adventures have just begun.
Hans de Beer was born in Muiden, a small town near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. He studied illustration at the Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam.
