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!

Also in this range for pre-schoolers: Bear Sees Colors and Bear Counts.

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!
