The Lovereading4Kids comment
Young children will very much enjoy Bear’s adventure. It begins on a beach where Bear is enjoying a day out, gazing at the sea from a sandcastle. But the children forget to take him home, the tide rises and washes him out to sea where he sinks to the bottom. Caught up in the fishermen’s nets he’s saved only to be snatched up by a seagull and carried high above the city of Edinburgh before he’s dropped back onto the beach and reunited with the children. It’s an exciting but ultimately reassuring story and children will love poring over Benedict Blathwayt’s wonderfully detailed pictures and spotting hidden treasures – a mermaid’s purse on the beach, a cat on the quayside, fish and molluscs hiding amongst the weed on the seabed. ~ Andrea Reece

Bear's Adventure by Benedict Blathwayt
Bear is a part of the family. He goes everywhere with his young companions. Then one day, somehow, Bear is left behind at the seaside. As the sun goes down, the tide comes in, and Bear begins his great adventure. Benedict Blathwayt tells the story of a bear who has been loved over the decades with the aid of his beautifully vibrant and exciting new illustrations. Bear’s Adventures is one of three new editions by Blathwayt including Tig and Tag and Little House by the Sea, both of which were published to great acclaim.
You can look at his illustrations for hours and still spot something new. There’s always lots to talk about’
