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.

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.
