Poppy and Sam and the Hunt for Jam


Strawberry-sized pals Poppy and Sam return for their fourth adventure

Hibernation is hard when a craving comes! Especially for Sam, who wakes up his pal Poppy in the middle of their winter slumber with a hankering to make rosehip jam. Full of determination, Sam sets out to find his friends in the snowy forest and collect the necessary ingredients.

All seems well, but on his way home, Sam gets trapped in a winter storm! He finds shelter in a cave, only to discover someone else is already hibernating there—a giant bear! It turns out that Ursula the bear is also hungry for a mid-hibernation treat. Luckily, Ursula is not craving miniature panda, and helps Sam get back to Poppy and the safety of home—where at last they enjoy some tasty snacks!

The adorable, cartoon-like illustrations and charming storyline will keep readers rooting for Sam’s success in the latest installment of the Poppy and Sam series.
