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

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
