Shocking, moving and based on real life. Gill Lewis will stun you with this emotive story of Asia’s tortured bears. Did you know that in Vietnam, China and many other Asian countries, bears are farmed for their bile – a liquid that comes from their liver? It’s true. Kept in tiny cages all their lives, often unable even to stand up or turn round. Can you imagine such cruelty? Now Gill Lewis, the author of Sky Hawk, tells a powerful story based on the suffering of these bears. Tam is a young boy forced to work on a bile farm. When he befriends a bear cub, will he dare challenge the evil he sees each day on the farm?
