“Balthazar was the world’s greatest violin-playing polar bear!” But he was kept captive in a cage to play his violin in a circus. He escapes and sets out to find his home. He found new friends on his journey, but “sometimes Balthazar felt more LOST and lonely than ever. Balthazar was beginning to think his journey would never end.” Downhearted he was about to turn back but a familiar face caught his eye… Grandpa Balthazar! (He had given Balthazar his first violin). “Balthazar was finally HOME! And he felt GREATER than ever.”
