"Two curious young grizzly bears go on a very long swim, far from their usual home in the Great Bear Rainforest. They crunch tart red cranberries in the bog, then dig for crabs on the beach. They wander through backyards and feast on plums. Then they sniff something even more delicious--mmm, barbecued salmon! But a village full of people is no place for grizzly bears, no matter how sweet the plums or how tasty that salmon smells. Time for a helicopter ride home! Based on a true story, The Great Grizzlies Go Home tells the story of the bears' adventurous journey, ending in their safe relocation back to the mainland. Featuring beautiful watercolour illustrations, an engaging story and even a list of bear facts and safety tips, it will capture the imagination of readers young and old."--Jacket flap.
