The New Bear at School

The New Bear at School

by Carrie Weston Illustrated by Tim Warnes

It's hard enough being the new kid at school, but when you're a big bear like Boris, it's even worse! Poor Boris tries his best to be gentle, but his sharp-toothed smile scares away the other animals. How will he ever make a friend?

This heartwarming book with delightfully charming illustrations will touch anyone who has ever felt left out, and make for a treasured starting school story.
