From a major new picture book talent comes a deceptively simple and exquisitely illustrated picture book about a little boy and his bear and finding a place called home. Told with humour and warmth, this is a story to capture the heart of its reader.

'Where Bear?' has been nominated for both the 2015 Kate Greenaway Medal and the 2015 Waterstones Children's Book Prize for Picture Books.
