Mummy and Me by Emma Chichester ClarkGorgeous new bear character from the highly-regarded creator of Blue Kangaroo and Melrose and Croc. The first book in a wonderful new series exploring the experiences of the very young through the eyes of the irrepressibly endearing Humber the bear. Humber's mum is the centre of his world and he loves doing so many different things with her. But one day Humber's mum is busy and doesn't have time for him, so Humber decides he can be busy too! Emma Chichester Clark's exquisite illustrations and wonderfully acute observations evoke a captivating world that both young children and their parents will instantly recognise.
'Two irresistible new characters from the creator of the popular Blue Kangaroo series.'
'A heart-warming tale of how friendships begin... This book is a wonderful tactile experience, from the shimmery glittery cover... to the gentle watercolours inside, which are printed on the creamiest of papers.'
'It delights children but adults will appreciate the period evocation of the festive-season cities and the off-season seaside.'
'Incredibly touching story.'
'Gorgeous Christmassy story about friendship.'
'You don't have to get too sentimental to find something special...The light in the illustrations makes this book all the more magical.'
'A beautifully illustrated and heart-warming tale.'
'This author/illustrator goes from strength to strength... Mouth-watering illustrations, ideal text, two mightily engaging characters - altogether the star on top of the tree.'
'I Love You, Blue Kangaroo!': 'Presented in clear, bright colours, this is a charming tale about affection and sharing.'
'The story is told with great sensitivity and gentleness and it is a profoundly satisfying and rewarding book.'
!'...would melt the stoniest heart. Blue Kangaroo is ousted from his place... by a procession of new toys. A tender and touching story for three to six year olds.
