A Little Box of Bears

The Idle Bear, A Bear Tale, The Rare Bear
Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

Have you ever wondered what your teddy bear might be thinking? Where he or she came from? Or what happens when they become old and rare? Robert Ingpen provides the answers in these three delightful tales.

The Idle Bear
The thoughts of Ted and Teddy are explored as they ponder and reminisce about the lives they once had as children’s toys – when they were important to their owners. Now, confined to the attic, they muse and question where they came from and why they are now ‘idle bears’.

A Bear Tale
Are teddy bears wise, or is it just owls? Join the inquisitive Ted on a journey of discovery. To slump or not to slump? That is Ted’s question.

The Rare Bear
Having served the same family for five generations, Bear discovers that he is to become a very special ‘Rare Bear’ and his friends declare that a celebration should be held to honour the occasion.

Illustrator Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads.

In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world.
