5.0 out of 5 stars A grandma's tale
By Ajay Sawant on 11 September 2019
Sophia Anderson returns again with this wonderful story that would best fit to the ones our grandmother told us to a good sleep. The story begins with a abandoned girl in a bear cave dragged into a small village atmosphere until she starts finding herself turning a bear. The urge to return back to the forest, explore the mountains and play in the rivers.
🌻🌻
The story follows the path of young girl set on discovery her family past and her place of belonging. To a part it was relatable to say we are often no less Yanka- unknow and wanting to know our roots. The story is questionable and explanatory and what we mean is it's satisfactory . We loved the sense of having Yanka gradually learn of her belonging and not in a moment, it was a journey of and not a destiny.
🌻🌻
This wasn't a amazement to me about Sophia's skill to make the reader stick to the book, her words will get you a clear cut imagination of what she wants you to. The book rather felt more illustrated without illustration with her wonderful language - lucid, beautiful, simple and much a fusion of most styles. We loved how she describes bonds between Yanka and her friends and everyone who accompanied her.
🌻🌻
Anyone literally of any age can sit along and enjoy this literary adventure featuring the snowy mountains and Yanka's adventures. The book gave a vibe of 'The wizard of Oz' how she's accompanied by different characters in her journey.
🌻🌻
Overall it was a great read and I would definitely recommend giving it a try. It's a must have book for any child to make his childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Camp fire Classic!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 January 2020
Yanka is a girl like no other. When her happy, settled life begins to change in unexpected ways, she sets out to search for her true identity, which is steeped in snowy myth and legend. These incredible, transformational tales are the very bedrock of her existence, and she uses them to figure out where she fits into her own more pragmatic world. A voyage of self discovery and acceptance, it’s the very magic of this folklore that helps Yanka understand where she comes from, and more importantly who she is now.

Read aloud I can imagine this takes on a totally different dimension, the kind that makes you long for snowy forests and blazing camp fires, and just thinking about it now makes me want to toast some marshmallows! I was swept along by this enchanting tale.

The beautiful cover, dreamy illustrations, richly textured language and vivid descriptions all place you right in the heart of the forest with Yanka and her band of faithful friends. It’s a story told from the outside in, so the author works her way back to the core of the tale where all the answers lie, a clever device that keeps the reader engaged and yearning for more.

A truly wonderful read for all ages and I can’t wait for Anderson’s next book.
