The Best Things in Life by Jez Alborough

Eddy and the Bear are an appealing duo - a little boy and a very silly bear who, together, have all sorts of funny adventures. Inspired by the original three bestselling titles by Jez Alborough Where's My Teddy?; It's the Bear!; and My Friend Bear, Eddy and the Bear will soon be appearing in their very own animated television series, to be screened later this year on CITV, and there's a whole range of new titles and merchandise for Eddy and the Bear fans too!

About the Author

Jez Alborough

Jez Alborough was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey in 1959. As a young boy he was always very creative but it was not until a guest bought him a box of crisp white paper, some pencils and a rubber that he expressed his creativity in drawing. As Jez says "It was an act of support and encouragement which I have never forgotten. The identity of this guest remains to this day a mystery. I like to think he was my guardian angel."

Jez is very much in demand for storytelling events for children, as well as speaking about his work to librarians and teachers.

He lives in London with his wife and enjoys playing the guitar and walking along the river.
