The Hugging Bears by Carol Butcher


The Hugging Bears by Carol Butcher

Inspired by the delightful statue of two bears on display in Kensington Gardens in London, The Hugging Bears is the story of two bear cubs, Ruggley and Teddi, who live with their mother in the wintry wilderness. A sudden and violent encounter with humankind changes the cubs' lives forever. Told with great simplicity and much heart by Carol Butcher, and featuring charming colour illustrations by Sue Turner, The Hugging Bears will be enjoyed by young children everywhere. The book also has a useful message about human's often unkind treatment of wild animals. The profits from this book will go the charity, Happy Child International, which supports the street children of Brazil.
