Small Bear Lost
by Martin Waddell
illustrated by Virginia Austin

A girl leaves her beloved Small Bear, her teddy bear, on the train. He valiantly attempts to make his way home by bus, on foot, and at last by balloons - and he manages to find his way home after a number of adventures


Such an engaging & resourceful bear!

Waddell's straightforward text is boxed and set in large type on most left-hand pages. The placement of the text allows Austin's expressive pencil-and-watercolour illustrations to charge the simple, linear story with some preschool-sized drama

The soft, pastel colours of the main character & the surrounding countryside are just right for the old-fashioned setting of this gentle tale

Small children will find much to like in Small Bear's travels: his plucky response to trouble, his playful sense of adventure, & his confident expectation of a happy ending. Austin's charming pencil & watercolour illustrations have an old-fashioned air & plenty of child appeal. A simple, satisfying story for preschoolers

I really liked this book. The illustrations were almost 'painting' like & it caught my 2 year old's attention

A little girl loves her 'small bear' and he loves her. She loses him and he finds his way back to her. A really cute book!
