"A baby mouse!"
"I had a big bear in my house. It was just a toy."
'the characters are adorable and endearing...outstanding'

"a fine addition for fans... lovely and reassuring"
Big Bear, Small Mouse
By Karma Wilson
Illustrated by Jane Chapman
Simon & Schuster 2016
Opposites are everywhere – can you find them, just like Bear?
Owl flies high, Wren flies low. Hare is fast. Badger is slow. Join Bear and Mouse as they spot all the opposites in their little glen!
My job as the illustrator was to expand on Karma’s clever, lilting rhyme to show a day in the life of Bear. It’s a simple but satisfying book with a warm and cosy ending – just right for a snuggly story time!
One of my favourite spreads shows Bear and his loud friends in the quiet woods – they look like they’re having so much fun!
