Jackie began writing Something about a Bear in a beautiful garden in Worcestershire. Her love of writing about Bears began many years before this with her first book Bears, Bears and More Bears. She has developed her ideas about writing, painting and looking and has thought about each page, the words and the bears for this book for some time. Jackie has created stunning watercolour paintings that describe 8 bears from all over the world shown in their wild habitats. Black Bear, Polar Bear, Sloth Bear, Spectacled Bear, Sun Bear, Panda, Moon Bear, and Brown Bear. Jackie asks at the end of book "But which is the best bear of all? Your own teddy bear, of course!"
Jackie will happily sign copies for you so remember to fill in the dedication box.
