"A perfect story to read curled up by the fire with a friend." (Jeanne Willis, author of The Bog Baby, on Bear and Bird). Bear and Bird are best friends. They live together in the middle of a beautiful forest. Bear and Bird have been planning an adventure all day - but when Frog turns up unannounced, Bear is so excited he forgets all about Bird. Bird is sulking because his big plans have been spoilt. But when Bear and Frog find themselves in trouble Bird has to swoop to their rescue - perhaps he will get his big adventure after all! The adorable follow up to Bear and Bird is the perfect gift for toddlers. Little ones aged two and up will love the story of an unlikely friendship. Perfect for kids who enjoyed Monkey and the Little One. Gwen Millward was born in Hitchin, England, but was brought up and went to school in Wales.
