EAGLE vs. BEAR
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23 AT 2 PM
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFOR NIA- Chaucer's Bookstore welcomes local author Emile Millar for an afternoon of storytelling and music with his children's adventure storybook Eagle vs. Bear.
A Rock ‘n’ Roll Children’s Adventure
Eagle vs Bear is a children’s adventure story told through narration, illustration, and rock ‘n’ roll.. For thousands of moons Eagle & Bear have coexisted in a magical Forest Kingdom, but not in perfect harmony. Forced to pick their berries, fish their salmon, and build their vast nests, The Bear struggle to survive. As Eagle Spies patrol the skies reporting anything unusual to their nefarious leader, Eagle Warrior, The Bear must rely on faith in a prophecy that one day, a brave and righteous bear will bring peace to The Forest Kingdom.
Follow the journey of Child Cub as he grows and finds his place among the Tribe. And discover Kindred Bear’s courageous spirit as she brings hope to their village. This fast-paced, coming-of-age story is full of fun and surprises and explores themes of adventure, problem solving, peace and friendship.
Each chapter comes with its own rock ‘n’ roll song. Download code printed in each book for direct listening on the book website or full download to a mobile device. Eagle vs Bear is a trend-setting book that bridges the gap between print and digital content. It keeps kids coming back to read, listen, and engage.
“(A) story full of warmth and imagination with much potential for inspiring our young people.”
