Polar Bear fishing for Miki

Miki is a beautiful, million-selling book by a well known fine artist, Stephen Mackey. Following the huge success of ONE SNOWY NIGHT, this adaptation has underwater scenes, a giant polar bear and an even bigger giant octopus. MIKI will be jammed with music, songs and lots of silliness.
