Former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne’s famous Bear who can draw his way out of trouble finds himself face to face from some scary characters from fairy tales. What will he do to escape a club-wielding Giant or a pointy-chinned Witch? Luckily, Bear comes up with some original and effective ideas!
This is the fairy-tale adventure of a little white bear and his magic pencil. Bear is walking through a deep dark forest when he meets a hungry-looking wolf, a giant, a scary witch and a family of three bears. With each encounter, Bear draws his way out of danger with the help of his magic red and yellow pencil. Originally published in 1989 this early work by a picture book master is available again for a brand-new audience. .
