Bear Feels Scared
By Karma Wilson
Illustrated by Jane Chapman
Simon and Schuster 2008
Bear is lost in the forest when a storm blows up. He gets so scared that he canʼt move, so his friends form a rescue party.
There is a lot of weather in this story, so I painted all the animalsʼ fur going in the same direction as the rain to show how strong the wind is. I especially like the picture where the rescue party are all tied together so that nobody can get lost….or blown away!
