Mishaps and misunderstandings mix with genuine warmth and affection in this witty series of stories about best friends Bear and Bird from the inimitable Jarvis.

Bear and Bird are best friends! And while they don't always understand each other, they both agree: all they want is to make the other happy. So, when Bear forgets to pack for a picnic (but pretends that he didn't), Bird doesn't let on that she knew all along. And when Bird discovers that Bear has more of a certain talent than she does, well, Bear finds a touching way to make her feel better...

Each book is an adorable collection of 4 stories. Perfect for first readers when they transition from picture book to chapter books and start reading independantly or for the whole family to enjoy together.


Jarvis studied graphic design and previously worked as a record sleeve designer, website designer and an animation director before becoming a children's book maker. His books with Walker include Mrs Mole, I'm Home! and Alan's Big, Scary Teeth, which won the 2017 V&A Best Illustrated Book.
