Pom-Pom the Podgy Bear by Sandra Christina Shaw

This short story in poetry form is about a cute, mischievous little bear called Pom-Pom. Pom-Pom is very kind and loving and wishes to please her parents at all times, but in the process she often ends up in all sorts of trouble. She is a great thinker, full of ideas, and she always tries to be helpful and good. When there is a problem she always tries to solve it, but the well-meaning bear finds herself in even greater difficulties. In Pom-Pom the Podgy Bear, Sandra Christina Shaw introduces us to Pom-Pom and relates the first of her many adventures.

About the Author

Sandra Christina Shaw was born in Birmingham in 1950, and moved to Hertfordshire at the age of five. Later in life, having resided in Berkshire, Wiltshire and Cornwall, she returned to Hertfordshire in 2009. She has always had a passion for poetry since she was a young girl, but her greatest desire was to become an actress. This stays with her, even today. Now retired, she enjoys writing at leisure, particularly for children, although she finds that adults enjoy her work just as much as the youngsters do.
