A funny and charming picture book with heart from rising star Duncan Beedie - now shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2017. There once was a bear who liked to stare... and stare... and STARE. Bear doesn't mean to be rude, he's just curious but too shy to say anything. But nobody likes being stared at and it soon gets Bear into trouble. Luckily a goggly-eyed frog helps Bear realise that sometimes a smile is all you need to turn a stare into a friendly hello.

Duncan said: "I like drawing animals with unusual expressions, I don't like drawing anything cute, and that's why I drew the bear staring." -- CitizenNews * Gloucester Citizen * The Bear Who Stared is an enjoyable tale from Duncan Beedie. It's a picture book with a heart, and the ability to make you smile. The Bear Who Stared is a very endearing tale, beautiful to read out loud. The wonderfully thick pages are adorned with Beedle's gorgeous illustrations - you can't help but fall in love with that bear! * My Book Corner * This is the first picture book by Duncan Beedie - The Bear Who Stared. Off the bat, I like the title and how that sits above the image of the bear staring (somewhat confused) out of the book at the reader. A great book for us parents out there with embarrassing children who like stare. * Magpie That * If you want to read the winning, first picture book of a fresh and interesting, new talent read The Bear Who Stared. The book (anti-stare, pro-smile - if you are keeping tabs) very gently suggests to children that pushing the boundaries of social norms can have consequences. The illustrations are bright and engaging. There is a terrifically grumpy badger and a happy ending. What more can you ask for*? -- Stephanie Cummings * Two in a TeePee * A cunningly illustrated book that explains the rudeness of staring, but also provides the explanation for it - a bear who is too shy to speak. Beginning - 'There was once a bear who liked to stare', the book then zooms in on the bear's eyes to show him staring out at the reader. It's a simply told tale, but highly effective because of the clarity of the illustrations - the floating expressive eyebrows, the constant zooming in to the animals' bodies, the lines indicating fur. Rich in vocabulary - 'gawked', 'trudged', 'strolled', and with many mentions of natural curiosity, this is a quiet message about politeness with an adorable bear. * Minerva Reads * With charming illustrations to complement the text, this is a lovely story about making friends and overcoming shyness. * Parents in Touch * After enjoying the story of Jim in The Lumberjack's Beard we were so happy to get our paws on a copy Duncan Beedie's first picture book, The Bear Who Stared. Published by TemplarPublishing, this book has been shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2017. In this story we meet a rather shy and awkward bear. Unsure of how to break the ice with his fellow forest dwellers this bear stares. He stares and stares. Naturally, all this staring makes everyone uneasy; the ladybirds shouted at him, the birds shooed him away and badger even took to biting him on the end of his nose. Sad and alone, the bear sits by the side of a pond and meets a wise frog who shows him the power of smiling. The next day he tries it out, smiling his way around the forest. Sure enough his smile lands him more friends than his stares and he even manages to keep the end of his nose safe too. Beautifully illustrated, in shades of orange and green, Duncan Beedie has skilfully created a serene and untouched forest setting for this story. The animals are so expressive with their big round eyes and eyebrows that seem to work completely separately from their bodies. My one-year-old likes the page where the badger has bitten the bear's nose and always goes to rub it better on the picture. This is my four-year-old's favourite page, a close up of the bear staring! We all find ourselves in the same boat as this bear from time to time; struggling to think of the right thing to say, a clever thing to say or just something to say at all. This would be a perfect book to help children who are nervous of making new friends or even to support others to understand how being shy makes someone feel. A stand-out book with endearing characters that tackles a sensitive issue with consideration and charm. * Acorn

Övrig information

Duncan Beedie has been doodling and drawing since way back in the early 1980s, lying on the living room floor, grasping a felt tip in his clammy little fist. He began his career animating children's TV before branching into design for websites, games and apps. These days he's a freelance illustrator based in Bristol, grasping a fancy digital stylus in his clammy fist instead, although he no longer lies on the floor to draw. He has a desk in a studio that overlooks the city. It's much more accommodating than nylon shag pile. Duncan's second picture book is The Lumberjack's Beard - available now.
