Our Review

The Good Bear is a heart-warming and magical tale.

Thea is desperate for a new typewriter so she can become the great writer she longs to be. Even more than she wants to become a writer Thea long to reconnect with her dad.

Henry lives in Norway with his new family and his attention has been sporadic at best. This year Thea is going to spend Christmas with Henry and his new family and she can’t wait to spend time with her dad.

From the beginning things don’t exactly go to plan and Thea ends up feeling more lost and isolated than ever. Then deep in the woods Thea comes across a bear and begins to bond with him.

This sweet Christmas tale is one to treasure and an absolute delight to read. I can’t wait to buy it for my son and my nieces and nephews. What a magical little tale.

The Good Bear is definitely a wintry weather book, one to curl up with and read in one sitting.

This book is about finding a place to belong and becoming comfortable in your own skin.

The Good Bear highlights the very real dangers that humans can pose to bears and the reasons why bears are sometimes aggressive to humans.

The main thing this book does is make you feel warm and fuzzy all over.
