Synopsis

Wash A-bye-bear by Thomas Docherty

Flora loves her Bear dearly, but her mum says it's time for him to go in the wash. Beautifully imagined scenes show Bear, in the wash, remembering how much fun they had getting grubby in the first place. When Bear is clean, he's just not the same, so Flora sets out to have some fun and get him back to his dirty but loveable self again. Then, at the end of a long day, it's Flora's turn to have a wash - and good old Bear still loves clean Flora just the same.

About the Author

Thomas Docherty

Thomas never thought he would end up writing stories. At school he wasn’t good at spelling and reading was a real struggle. Luckily his Mum and Dad read to him and took him to the library where he spent hours looking at Asterix books. Even so, it wasn’t until many years later, after he had been through school and Art College, that he wrote his first children’s book. It was called ‘Pip and the Lost Dream’ and it is published in Spain, Taiwan and South Africa. Now Thomas does most of his work in the UK and is based in Bristol, where he lives with his wife Helen and daughter Lucia. Whenever possible he likes to go along to schools and libraries to talk to the kids about his work and help them write and draw their own stories.
