Synopsis

A Very Curious Bear by Tony Mitton

One bright morning, on a walk in the woods, Little Bear is filled with wonder...and questions! Why does the sun come and light up the day? Why does the wind rush around in the air? Why does the stream seem to gurgle and babble? Luckily, Big Bear has all the answers! A beautifully written portrayal of the tender moments shared between a daddy bear and his cub, from award-winning poet Tony Mitton and illustrated in atmospheric detail by the incredibly talented Paul Howard.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
