Here is Mary in action, and in every imaginable mood. A busy bear.
You might be surprised to know that each individual image is barely bigger than my fingernail.
You won’t be surprised to hear how often I’ve wondered if I could have this made into fabric, so I could sew myself a Mary frock.
I did find a use for these tiny bears…
I’m not a fan of too much text with no pictures. So in Mostly Mary and All Mary, on the (rare) pages with no large illustrations, look out for a tiny treat in the page corners.
Tomorrow, meet Mary’s friends and family!
bringing Mary to life on the page
With just a week to go until publication by Egmont UK of Mostly Mary and All Mary, I’ll be posting a special little something every day to celebrate. We will go behind the scenes for sneak previews and never-seen-before drawings. We will get to know Mary, orphan bear cub from the bear pits of Berne Zoo. meet her friends and family, and even visit the bear pits themselves.
There will be rosettes and condensed milk and iced buns. And there will be meringues, OF COURSE. What kind of party would it be without meringues?
Welcome to Mary’s world!
Decorated with shiny silver dots, like little moons!
In this third book in the Dotty Detective series, best pals Dot and Beans are on a school trip to Adventure Camp. There are zip wires and moonlight walks and marshmallows to toast by the campfire… but OH NO there are mysterious, mischievous goings-on in pursuit of the much-coveted Ace Adventurers Prize. Its a case for the Join the Dots Detectives!
an unusual first class bear
This has been a VERY difficult secret to keep under my hat, or should I say behind my large white rosette…
Gosh I haven’t been busy with this blog for the longest time…
like a Reliant Robin sitting on the drive under it’s cosy winter car cover (one careful lady owner).
But what a party to get back into the driving seat for – Publication Day for Mango and Bambang: Tiny Tapir Trouble, by Polly Faber and me.
