Little Polar Bear And The Brave Little Hare (32 pp.; $15.95; PLB $15.88; Nov. 1; 0-7358-1011-7; PLB 0- 7358-1012-5): Lars (Little Polar Bear, Take Me Home!, 1996, etc.) gains a new friend in his latest adventure. In his trademark pink, purple, and blue pastel-colored arctic landscape, Lars saves Hugo, a nervous hare, from a hole. As fast friends they race, get caught in a storm, snuggle up against one another for warmth, share a picnic, and find their way home, but not before Hugo gets to show his own courage by getting Lars out of a jam. Such teamwork and fond friendship will win readers’ hearts while the falling snow and expressive faces will dazzle their eyes. (Picture book. 4-7)
