About the Author
Claire Freedman is the author of more than one hundred books for young readers. She tried writing in various genres before discovering a passion for children's books. She is best known for her award-winning Underpants series, which has sold more than two million copies to date and has been published in twenty-one languages. Alison Friend spent three years working as an apprentice stonemason before meeting her husband. After they moved to America, she began painting funny animal pictures for greeting cards, then realized she should be illustrating books for children. She lives in England's Lake District and enjoys walking her border collie, Blue, and swimming in lakes (when it's warm!).
The theme of friendship is matched by the warm, cozy feeling of the mixed-media illustrations. Bear's helpfulness and his budding creativity make him a positive role model. Reading, writing, listening, helping, thanking: Bear and his animal friends can inspire young readers in family, school, or library settings.
