Description

When Mommy Bear comes to look for her baby bears, she finds three snow bears instead. They don't look quite like her bears, but they do like to slide down the snowy slope and throw snowballs, just like her bears do. Little readers will love being in on the charming snow-bear game, recounted by master storyteller Martin Waddell and illustrated by Sarah Fox-Davies with all the crisp beauty of a snowy day.




About the Author

Martin Waddell is the author of many well-loved books for children, including CAN'T YOU SLEEP, LITTLE BEAR? - one of four tales about Big Bear and Little Bear - FARMER DUCK, OWL BABIES, WEBSTER J. DUCK, and WHO DO YOU LOVE? He got the idea of writing SNOW BEARS, he says, when "I was watching some children pretending to be someone else, and I thought, what a beautiful story."

Sarah Fox-Davies has illustrated many picture books for children, including LITTLE CAIRBOU, which she also wrote; WALK WITH A WOLF by Janni Howker; and BAT LOVES THE NIGHT by Nicola Davies. She says that while doing research for the illustrations of SNOW BEARS, she "saw a great many snowballs being thrown and ate really big piles of toast by the fireside."
