Big Bear stepped out of her winter den. By her side, half asleep and blinking in the spring sunshine, wobbled a tiny cub... Spring is here and new life is stirring. There is so much for Big Bear to teach her new cub about the wonders of nature as they step out into the forest. Their journey will take them through summer and autumn and winter, always together, always discovering. With its lyrical storytelling and evocative charcoal drawings depicting the natural world in all its glory, Jo Weaver's debut book has the feel of an instant classic. The beautifully simple cover with gold foil, instantly conjures the tender relationship between parent and child. Jo Weaver was shortlisted for the AOI Illustration New Talent Awards 2014.
