4.0 out of 5 stars Dreams and reality, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A beautifully illustrated book about the way children mix dreams and real life. The Bear is about a little girl and a mysterious big white bear that becomes her friend. Is the bear an imaginary friend or is it real? The little girl takes care of the big bear and her parents behave as loving parents do, that is, they behave as if the bear were real. The illustrations, with their whites and greys and misty atmospheres, set the dreamy, even slightly unsettling atmosphere of this book.
`The Bear' is not a cheerful sunny book and I think it is more an illustrated book for adults than for children. I loved it for the beautiful illustrations and the sense of kindness and understanding it conveys.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Year Three's View!, 30 May 2011
A big bear who gets in a little girl's bedroom window?

It can only be The Bear.

Raymond Briggs has won the Kate Greenway award. He has the best books in the world!

A Bear crept in the house. A little girl saw The Bear and she told it to go to bed with her. And the bear growled at Tilly. In the morning she ran down to tell her kind parents. Her mum was going to work and Tilly gave the bear a bath. The Bear did a poo and wee on the floor and Tilly had to clean it. The Bear was going away.

But does The Bear come back? How old is The Bear?
