Black Bear is feeling lonely, so he decides to look for a friend. Luckily, he meets Brown Bear, who is in the same situation! The bears decide to search for a friend together. They search everywhere, but their elusive friend is nowhere to be found. Or have they been right there all along?
With stunning artwork and heart-warming text, this is a beautiful picture book from the Kate Greenaway Medal-shortlisted Petr Horácek that will delight our youngest readers who may be feeling a little apprehensive about taking that next step to preschool or big school. Not making friends is one of the greatest anxieties and this will reassure them that friends are everywhere – they’re just people you haven’t met yet.
