Maudie and Bear by Jan Ormerod

 

This lovely book is a collection of five adventures had by Maudie and her dear friend Bear. Maudie loves Bear very much, but can also be rather demanding. Luckily for her, Bear is patient and loving and always there for her! The stories are sweet and funny, and charmingly illustrated by Freya Blackwood.

The book itself is a thing of beauty – a gorgeous hardback with a ribbon marker, so would make a lovely gift. This delightful book has also recently been named the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Early Childhood Book of the Year for 2011. Destined to become a classic, I’m sure! Hardback, $29.95
