Bear didn’t really like the painting. I mean, look at it. But he liked Bird a lot, and it would remind him of her…

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...

Full of funny mix-ups and comic misunderstandings, as well as genuine warmth and affection, these four stories are the start of an irresistibly charming new chapter book series from award-winning creator Jarvis.

MEDIA REVIEWS

These wittily illustrated stories of mishaps, hurt feelings, fondness and friendship have a transporting quality, ideal for 5+. - Imogen Russell-Williams, Guardian

A sweet, funny book for early readers, Bear and Bird has all the charm and wisdom of Julian Gough and Jim Field’s Rabbit and Bear series. Bear and Bird are best friends but sometimes they get things wrong. In four short stories, Jarvis explores the ups and downs of friendship with warmth and humour. The illustrations are glorious — the pops of orange and yellow, Bear’s mottled fur, the starry navy blue of the night sky. - The best new children’s books to read this Easter, Irish Independent

Bear and Bird epitomise enjoying the simple things in life with the ones you love. This clever showcase features four unique mini stories inspired by friendship. Each story is perfectly complimented by Jarvis’ illustrations which are heart-warming and effortlessly charming. - WRD

Bear and Bird has an appealingly cosy feel, reminiscent of the Winnie the Pooh stories. - BookTrust

The sweet friendship between Bear and Bird is reminiscent of classic duos such as Frog and Toad or Armadillo and Hare. The message of kindness in this story is sure to resonate. - Children's Books Ireland, Reading Matters Guide 2023
