Nina, the Bear's Child

An enchanted forest, true love, and animals that talk.

Spirited and kind, Nina is a gift of laughter and happiness to her parents. She has a talent for spreading joy everywhere she goes. Taught by her skilled parents, Nina crafts handmade clothing and furniture but not for humans. Her creations are for forest animals and fairy folk.

 

After her father’s unexpected death, Nina’s mother marries a local hunter in order to keep food on the table. But the hunter despises Nina and is jealous of her mother’s love for her, so Nina’s stepfather makes a wicked plan.

 

When Nina is trapped and left to die in the Cave of Madness, she must find a way to survive, knowing she can never return home. Nina uses her wit, kindness, and wildness to make a new life for herself among the forest animals who love her. Will Nina learn the truth about the forest magic and the power of love?

 

This retelling of Muin, the Bear’s Child is great for readers who enjoy folktales, fairy tales, and mystical stories about the world. Perfect for middle grade and older.
