Bramwell Bear remembers his friend Old Bear, who used to live with them in the Playroom, but is now banished to the attic. Bramwell and his friends Little Bear, Duck and Rabbit attempt to rescue him using a number of ingenious methods. Eventually, with the aid of a toy aeroplane, the rescue is effected and Old Bear joins his friends in the Playroom. Jane Hissey's comforting nursery world is wonderfully evoked in her delightful colour illustrations, which are full of warmth and vitality. This is an endearing book to share with young children. -- Philippa Reece


." . . Printed on high-quality matte stock that does justice to Hissey's elegant, photo-realistic colored-pencil illustrations, this volume is a work of art. The story is simply and succinctly told, and the toys are both clever and cooperative, making this a book that will appeal to both parents and children. Libraries with well-worn original copies would do well to update with this edition." "--Booklist "
