Bear by Raymond Briggs

Book Description

One night a great big, white polar comes to stay with Tilly. The bear's got black hooked claws and huge yellow teeth; but his white furry coat is warm and soft and Tilly decides he's the cuddliest thing in the whole world. Tilly soon finds out that a big bear can cause big problems - he takes a LOT of looking after! But when she describes the bear's latest antics to her parents they think he's a figment of her imagination - but is he?

Featureing Jim Broadbent, Brenda Blethyn and Luke Treadaway Utterly original, deeply moving and very funny, this is the story of Raymond Briggs' parents' marriage, lady's maid Ethel and milkman Ernest, from their first chance encounter in 1928, through the birth of their son Raymond in 1934, to their deaths, within months of each other, in 1971.

Notes from the Sofa by Raymond Briggs Notes from the Sofa, Hardback (November 2015)

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Young Tilly wakes to find a gigantic, affectionate polar bear filling her room, nearly, in this oversized thematic soul mate to Briggs's classic The Snowman (1978). Tilly's parents, of course, can't see it. But they go along with the joke even as the bear lumbers hugely about the house, knocking over furniture, emptying the honey jar in one slurp, proving itself not quite housebroken ("Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!" Tilly mutters, stomping off to fetch a mop), but more than willing to let a small child give it a shampoo or nestle cozily in its lap. The text is entirely spoken - mostly Tilly prattling to or about her new companion - and winds through and between Briggs's soft, low-contrast colored-pencil drawings. Whether seen in full-page scenes or cinematic sequences of smaller panels, the bear is never less than massive, but (despite a startling first appearance) never frightening either. It climbs out Tilly's window the following dawn as quietly as it arrived, leaving her, tearful, to be comforted by her father: "Bears can't live in houses with people...that sort of thing only happens in story books." Slightly precious, but funny. (Kirkus Reviews)
