From publicity materials, in The Woman who Married a Bear (Simply Read, 2008; republished 2015), "an arrogant young girl who insults the bears must face the consequences: punishment from the bears themselves. Detailed watercolor illustrations convey the spectacular natural beauty of the Pacific West Coast, from its misty seashores to its wildflower- filled meadows and icy mountain peaks. Both story and pictures teach children the importance of respecting and honoring nature and animals."

Elizabeth James lives in Vancouver, BC, and loves the sea.
