Bhimsa, the Dancing Bear
Bhimsa, the Dancing Bear is a children's novel by Christine Weston. Set in contemporary India, it follows the adventures of two boys, David and Gopali, as they roam the country with a dancing bear. The first edition was illustrated by Roger Duvoisin. The novel was first published in 1945 and was a Newbery Honor recipient in 1946.
Kirkus Reviews called it " A bit out of this world atmosphere and occasionally moralizing -- but in all a satisfactory adventure story" and "The Roger Duvoisin pictures in two colors are sure passport to charm."
