A 13,500-year-old polar bear tells a little penguin about his adventures amongst the humans, revisiting the teachings of five historical figures that had a profound effect on him throughout his long life. The first one is Noah, who saved the polar bear from the great flood. The second one is Moses, the third one is Buddha, the fourth one is Jesus, and the fifth one, and by no means the least, is Muhamad.
It goes without saying that it takes a lot of guts to write about these exceptional men. However, the author manages a “tour de force” that is both enchanting and touching. The most religious people of this world, as well as the most hardened atheists will be touched by these words.

From the very first pages, the childlike yet thoughtful tone both amuses and provokes. A voyage through the troubling and marking era of human history. En savoir plus
