‘Does she sleep? Shall we peek?

Is it really Bear?

Shall we sneak outside and see if Bear is really there?

”Middleton’s prose is lilting and merry, enchanting readers all the way to the surprise ending. Gentle rhyme maintains the musical quality of this story along with an enticing air of mystery and expectation. Witty, clever and oozing with big-hearted affection, The Bear in our Backyard is a definite winner to share with your kids.’ Dimity Powell Boomerang Book Reviews.
