Oksi by Mari Ahokoivu
Where was the bear born?
By the moon, next to the sun
Among the stars of the plough
Sent to Earth in a golden cradle
With silvery chains.
Poorling is a little bear. She's a bit different from her brothers.
Mother keeps their family safe. For the Forest is full of dangers. It is there that Mana lives, with her Shadow children.
And above them all, Emuu, the great Grandma in the Sky.
From the heart of Finnish folklore comes a breathtaking tale of mothers, daughters, stars and legends, and the old gods and the new.
