The Bear!

My mother-in-law (hello, Jane!) recently found this photograph that she took a long time ago of Voytek the bear, the star of Bibi Dumon Tak’s Soldier Bear, which I translated for Eerdmans Books for Young Readers. After his army adventures, Voytek retired to Edinburgh Zoo, where my mother-in-law met him as a girl. It’s wonderful to have a family connection to the story I so enjoyed working on!
