I could bearly (sorry!) contain my excitement this morning as a little package arrived this morning containing advanced copies of my new book About A Bear! It is so exciting to see bear in all his beautifully bound glory and think he looks very happy in own his little book! I am so delighted with how both the paper and hardback have turned out, the colours look great. Harper Collins have been great letting me go wild with my palette and the reproduction shows the pinks and metallics just brilliantly.

A bear can be happy," the story begins, as the brown bear lifts his pointed nose into the air, full of brightly colored butterflies. A bear can be sad" when all the butterflies drift away, and the bear, sitting on the ground, looks longingly up into the sky. Surplice's text is a simple 20-line poem, spread out over a dozen two-page illustrations. Readers watch the brown bear frolic in the falling leaves, examine and ultimately play with a turtle, climb a tree to get to a beehive and lie on his back in the water like a raft
