Paul G Day about this book: This is a story of hope, a story about a little Bear who manages to overcome adversity and meet every challenge life throws at him with dignity, with kindness and ultimately with courage. Red Bear is to the Bear World what Forrest Gump is to humanity, a symbol of humility, of unassuming meekness, whose attitude to life is matched only by his courage. The Misadventures of Red Bear is about a journey, both rewarding and unique. Red Bear's circumstances will find him wandering through forests and woodlands, trekking through snow, hiking up mountains and facing many dangers along the way. On his journey, Red Bear never questions why or complains about his lot in life. He merely reacts to those around him with a genuine sense of wonder. He does feel fear, but he overcomes through the discovery of talents he never knew existed just beneath the surface. If there is a message for children, it is simply this: Never doubt yourself. Accept yourself, but never accept that you are powerless and draw on the inspiration of true friendship.
Children will adore Red Bear. Adults will love reading it to them. This is a series begging to be read. Red Bear's story is immediately accessible and poignant. This is mainly because Red Bear's story is also my story.
This is a revised edition complete with pictures produced by the author himself, taken from photos of toys arranged in mock-ups for each scene and converted to water colour to make them vibrant, colourful and appealing to children. I truly hope you enjoy this book, but more importantly, that your children will enjoy it more.
