AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Join Mr Brown the bear as he prepares to hibernate through another long, cold winter. But there’s a hiccup: Mr Brown isn’t ready! Before he can put on his blindfold and enjoy a well-deserved rest, his friends Petunia, Boris, Lulu, Digby and Mabel must come to the rescue and help him complete his chores. Can they get him tucked in before the first snowfall?

'Mr Brown is a whimsical rhyming story of a bear preparing to hibernate. The fun to read aloud rhyme provides opportunities for children to anticipate and predict the rhyming words and assists children in building their language skills. Along with the story itself the beautiful illustrations by Naya and Kostya Lazareva bring Mr Brown’s world to life and make Mr Brown an engaging story for young readers.

'Through her work, Thomasina aims to not only engage and entertain the young reader, but also inform their sense of self and place within the world. By providing her audience with a lighthearted tale in which different animals band together despite their very visible differences she encourages children to consider what’s truly important in a friend and what’s truly important in a friendship. This is more than a bedtime story, it’s an opportunity to show your children the value of friendship and teach them the values that glue friendship together.' (Publication summary)
