Where Bear? By Sophy Henn

My review: I love this book!

I should probably say why, here are 14 reasons…

  1. It’s simplicity
  2. The bold coloured backgrounds
  3. The character designs
  4. The boy’s Breton jumper
  5. Sophy’s signature
  6. The mat finish
  7. The quality of the paper
  8. The typography on the front cover
  9. The bear’s pot belly
  10. The rhythm of the words
  11. The old school red telephone
  12. Sophy’s little puffin illustrations on the spine & title page
  13. The end pages
  14. The exquisite illustrations

The story is of a bear, who lives with a boy in a house. The bear outgrows the house. The boy tries to find his friend a more suitable home.

This is Sophy Henn’s debut picture book. I for one can’t wait for the next.

Watch this space, a Q&A with Sophy is coming soon.
