Can You See a Little Bear?

Where is Little Bear? In this charming look-and-find book, highlighted by Jackie Morris's gorgeous animal fantasies, very young children explore theatrical and circus settings as they attempt to find the missing cub. The concepts of opposites, colours and contrasts are introduced in the read-aloud nursery verse and simple clues and vivid word images help children discover Little Bear, whether he is trying on a hat, standing on his head or floating in a balloon. Gradually Little Bear moves into a more familiar landscape of tea, bath and bedtime, a cue for little bears' bedtimes everywhere.
 

Tell Me a Dragon

Dragons come in every shape and size. In lyrical words and breathtaking pictures, children describe their dragons – and in a final gathering of fire, scales and claws you can imagine your own special dragon.

In this enchanting picture book by award-winning artist and author Jackie Morris, explore a world of dragons through lyrical text and beautifully realised illustrations. Now available in this large, high-quality production format for full enjoyment of the artwork and the fantastical creatures it presents.
