Winter Bear

  • A sensitive, colourful, subtle, and comforting winter album, to address a huge current issue and discover winter from the point of view of the homeless.

    Like every year, at the end of autumn, Aldo the bear returns to his den, to hibernate all winter. But this time, when the first frosts arrive, he is chased from his house: someone has taken his lair!


    Forced to face winter for the first time ever, with no other equipment than a coat and a scarf, Aldo will discover that sometimes, during a cold winter, the smile of a friend may be more comforting than a warm chimney fire.
