Judy Hilgemann wrote and illustrated the kidlit book, The Great Grizzlies Go Home (Harbour $23.95) about two grizzlie bears that swim to Comorant Island and surprise the residents of Alert Bay. The bears wander around the town for a few days before conservation officers are called in to safely trap and re-locate them back to the mainland. Based on true events, the book has 30 watercolour illustrations and a section on bear safety tips. 978-1-55017-907-1
