I thought this was a very cute book It is about a boy who, with his pet bear, got swept away from his mountain village in Northern India during a bad storm He befriends another boy and together they go through some adventures on their way back to find the village.Some things I liked about the book First, the boy with the bear was an Indian and the addition was an English colonist However, throughout the book this is a complete non issue, and it becomes easy to forget their different backgrounds Recall that this book was written in 1945, 2 years before India even became independent from England, so this respect for a different people is quite impressive.Second, there is real concern for the boy who ran away from home to help his new friend He ignores it and justifies it within himself occasionally, but good responsible people are able to help remind him of what s important.Third, the way the boys think and act seems so real, and it makes me happy to see the way they interpret their surroundings.And Finally, the book was quite from what I have checked out considering the surroundings and the different wildlife and types of villages in the different climates they passed through between the Indian planes and the base of the Himalayas.All in all, if you can actually get your hands on a copy of this book, then it is worth the 2 3 hours of your time to read it.

A young English boy, David, meets up with a native boy, Gopali, and his trained bear, Bhimsa, making their way home They all join up and have some adventures Has a bit of a timeless feel to it. 2.5 3 stars This short novel set in India is the story of a bored young boy English probably who goes wandering with another boy and his bear because every boy should have a bear The most remarkable thing about it is the total lack of ethnic tension or misunderstanding which is nice but makes me wonder about the author who wrote it English but born raised in India and the time period she did it in Gandhi and Indian Pakistan independence Now the bearI suspected that it had been raised from a cub due to unfortunate circumstances, but I was pleased that they treated Bhimsa as a family member Biggest question how did David manage to wander that length of time without a nationwide search I read this for my 2019 Reading Challenge and my Newbery Challenge Honor Book 1946. Two boys and a trained dancing bear go on a walking adventure in India They meet up with a haughty young prince, a kind philosopher, a troupe of evil robbers, and a hungry tiger before finding their way back home Shrug It was okay, but not fabulous A bit dated, I suppose, and the characters a little flat.
