Old Bear (Old Bear and Friends)

The original classic children's story about a bear and his best friends, now in its 35th year!

Once, long ago, Bramwell Brown saw the much-loved Old Bear packed away in a box in the attic. Now, Bramwell knows the time has come to find his forgotten friend and save him from becoming lonelier and lonelier. So, with the help of Little Bear, Duck, Rabbit, and the other toys, he plans a rescue mission. And it's three, two, one, off they go! Jane Hissey's enchanting picture book about a very special day makes a perfect bedtime story.
