About the Author

Tracey Corderoy lives in a hidden valley in Gloucestershire, England, with her husband, two children, and an ever-increasing menagerie of devilishly cute but sometimes naughty pets. As a teacher who has always had a passion for literature, her head is crammed with countless ideas and stories, and she loves the adventures that her characters insist on sharing with her.

Sarah Massini has always loved to draw. Her mother said it was a blessing how paper and a pencil could keep her quiet and out of mischief for hours. This lifelong habit has seen her through careers in corporate design, children's book design, and illustration . . . which is what she loves doing best. She lives in England with her husband and young son and their terrier, Tess, who keeps guard as she draws.


Massini's charmingly textured and colorful illustrations have a pleasing sense of spaciousness.
--Kirkus Reviews

In this quiet tale by Corderoy, an unlikely friendship grows through the seasons...A sweet tale of unexpected pals.
--Publishers Weekly

Massini's illustrations in mixed-media format capture the watercolor blues and greens of pond life, with Bear a blue, endearingly round creature with tiny eyes and ears; the much smaller boy sports a cute red pom-pom hat that stands out against the cooler tones. This is a typical yet touching story about the power of friendship, even through the seasons and across species; viewers will smile at the final image of the boy and Bear embracing after spending the winter apart.
