: Lars, the Little Polar Bear, spends his days watching the seagulls circling overhead & dreams of flying in the sky like a bird. One day he meets a lost puffin who cannot fly home because his wings are sticky with oil. Always ready to help a friend in need, Lars takes the little puffin to the healing waters of the hot spring. Just as they re about to leave the hot spring, Lars & the little puffin discover a huge hot-air balloon. At last, it seems that Lars's dream of exploring the sky will come true! But flying high above the ground proves to be very scary, & Lars wonders if he'll ever make it back down to his snow hill far below. Translated from the Swiss German edition.
