IN LITTLE BEAR AND THE JOLLY DRAGON, the other toys come across a fearsome dragon sleeping in a den under the chair - and worse -it is wearing Little Bear's trousers! Could it REALLY have eaten Little Bear but perhaps this small dragon isn't quite as fierce as it seems? In the PANTOMIME, the story of Goldilocks and The Three Bears inspires the toys to put on an impromptu show. Little Bear is anxious to play ALL the porridge-eating parts but finally settles for the role of Baby Bear. In THE BOAT RACE the toys are playing in the garden when it seems like a good idea to have a boat race on the stream. They buid their own boats and set off, but things don't go exactly to plan when Little Bear's boat gets caught in a gust of wind. Finally, THE BIRTHDAY CAMP - one of the most magical Old Bear Stories ever. Little Bear is given a tent for his birthday and is allowed to sleep outside in the garden with Rabbit. here are four wonderful Old Bear stories full of all the fun, adventure and magic that has made Jane Hissey one of the world's best-loved story-tellers.

Jane Hissey's unremittingly delectable Bear books have thrilled generations of toddlers, and these stunningly simple yet somehow deeply detailed books have certainly become classics that will be passed on to further generations of little ones in years to come.
Hissey's almost perfect illustrations of the toys she grew up with breath life into the characters of Little Bear, Rabbit, Old Bear and their toy-cupboard pals, and the clever mix of modern writing and nostalgic illustration perfectly captures a charm and mood that rarely fails to delight.
Little Bear's Dragon, a collection of four brand new stories, is no exception to the Hissey rule and is as enchanting and endearing as any of her other work. Whether messing about in a stream in The Boat Race, taking an unusual trip in The Birthday Camp, showing off on stage in The Three Bears or telling spooky tales in the title story, Little Bear's Dragon, Hissey's characters--Rabbit, Old Bear, Little Bear, Bramwell Brown and many, many more-- prove that there is plenty of life in the old toy cupboard yet.
