The Lovereading4Kids comment

Old Bear was first published in 1986 and became one of the bestselling picture books ever with spin off merchandise that ensured he became a household name for a whole generation of children. Now, like the story of the much-loved bear in Old Bear, that was lost and then found, the book has been found again and is now waiting to be loved by a whole new generation.


Old Bear by Jane Hissey

A brand new paperback edition of Jane Hissey's classic picture book tells the familiar story of how a much-loved teddy bear is lost and finally found again. Bramwell Brown and his friends Little Bear, Duck and Rabbit attempt to rescue Old Bear from the attic using a number of ingenious methods.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
