Winner of the 2023 Yoto Carnegie Medal for Illustration. Written by scientist and environmental activist Trang Nguyen, Saving Sorya: Chang and the Sun Bear is an inspirational graphic-novel adventure, based on a true story about a young conservationist who overcomes the odds to save a sun bear. When Chang discovers a bear farm near her home in Vietnam, she decides to do everything she can to save wild animals - by becoming a conservationist.

After teaching herself survival skills and learning all she can about the rainforest, Chang is finally accepted as a rescue centre volunteer. But her toughest challenge yet comes when she makes a vow to return Sorya - the sun bear she raised from infancy - back to the wild. Because despite being a different species, Sorya is Chang's best friend.

And letting a friend go is never easy, even when it's the right thing to do
