AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The city is no place for a polar bear like George George is homesick and it's making him a terrible grump. Nothing he usually likes seems fun any more. To make matters worse, George has no idea what or where home is. So the large white bear leaves his small hot apartment and sets off from the city. He doesn't know what he's looking for, but he's sure he'll know it when he finds it.' (Publication summary)
