My Friend Bear

Greeted with shrieks of delight.
The Independent on Sunday

With other Bear books behind him it’s a joy to discover this new Alborough tale has lost none of the early charm and humour. The longed for ‘aaah’ was right on cue as the story came to a satisfactory end. Child Education

Alborough’s bold illustrations reflect and resolve children’s fears about those who are so much bigger than them. The Guardian

Jez Alborough has come up with another winner in My Friend Bear, a very funny sequel to Where’s My Teddy and It’s the Bear. Bookseller

Child listeners or readers positively squirm with delight. As ever the rhyming text rollicks along and the dialogue gives plenty of opportunity for those readers who like to put the panache of feeling and different voices into their rendition to give a virtuoso performance. Child Education

Guaranteed to delight. Carousel Magazine

A heart-warming tale about the beginning of a special friendship. Alborough’s gentle watercolours portray the character’s feelings through both body language and facial expressions.
School Library Journal (U.S.)

…what prevails is Alborough’s expert understanding of just what preschoolers find amusing. Publisher’s Weekly
