Synopsis

The Bear Who Stared by Duncan Beedie

A funny and charming picture book with heart from rising star Duncan Beedie - now shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2017. There once was a bear who liked to stare...and stare...and STARE. Bear doesn't mean to be rude, he's just curious but too shy to say anything. But nobody likes being stared at and it soon gets Bear into trouble. Luckily a goggly-eyed frog helps Bear realise that sometimes a smile is all you need to turn a stare into a friendly hello.

Reviews

Duncan said: I like drawing animals with unusual expressions, I don't like drawing anything cute, and that's why I drew the bear staring. -- CitizenNews Gloucester Citizen The Bear Who Stared is an enjoyable tale from Duncan Beedie. It's a picture book with a heart, and the ability to make you smile. The Bear Who Stared is a very endearing tale, beautiful to read out loud. The wonderfully thick pages are adorned with Beedle's gorgeous illustrations - you can't help but fall in love with that bear! My Book Corner This is the first picture book by Duncan Beedie - The Bear Who Stared. Off the bat, I like the title and how that sits above the image of the bear staring (somewhat confused) out of the book at the reader. A great book for us parents out there with embarrassing children who like stare. Magpie That

About the Author

Duncan Beedie has been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on the living room floor, grasping a felt tip in his clammy little fist. He began his career animating children's TV before branching into design for websites, games and apps. These days he's a freelance illustrator based in Bristol, grasping a fancy digital stylus in his clammy fist instead, although he no longer lies on the floor to draw. He has a desk in a studio that overlooks the city. It's much more accommodating than nylon shag pile. Duncan's second picture book is The Lumberjack's Beard - available now.
