Happy Birthday Old Bear by Jane Hissey

Review by The Mole

Old Bear is now 30 years old! And to celebrate there's a brand new story with new illustrations.

All his friends set about organising a birthday party with presents, cake and music when suddenly a gust of wind carries Elsie away on an umbrella, but in true Old Bear style the day is saved and a wonderful time is had by all.

Once again Jane Hissey has beautifully illustrated this book using her and her families soft toys as models.

Old Bear and his friends are a rare breed of characters. Every one is kind and considerate without a trace of selfishness in their character. This makes them universally acceptable to millions of people around the world.

With over 7 million books published throughout the world Jane Hissey's characters are widely read in 20 different languages. And this book is to be launched on 9th September 2016 - National Teddy Bear Day!

We have come a long way since 1986 but Old Bear has remained a constant in all that time - something to cherish and enjoy with children. Here's to the next 30 years Old Bear.

Happy Birthday Old Bear!
