‘Going Home’ was highly commended by the Pan Macmillan judges in 2017. The book follows the story of Victor the polar bear who one day finds himself in the wild for the very first time.
The story was inspired by a real life male polar bear named Victor (who I dedicated the book to) who has been bounced from one zoo to another all of his life for breeding. In 2014 he was moved to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and at the time was England’s only polar bear in captivity. Since then, Victor has been joined by 3 other polar bears, one of which is his grandson. https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/857/753/563/
