Polar Bear Pete

Polar Bear Pete lived in the Arctic where everything was covered in snow and ice. It was very very cold but Pete didn’t mind. He had thick white fur to keep him cosy and warm and four big paws with five big toes on them to walk around on. He liked to swim in the sea and catch his dinner and play tag in the snow with his Polar Bear friends.

One day a scientist came for tea. He told Pete that he had bad news. The ice Pete lived on was starting to melt and Pete might have to find a new home. The scientist had a friend in Australia who said it was a great place to live. Pete decided to go and visit Australia and see what it was like.

So begin the adventures of Pete.

A new book jacket for Pocket Mountains

This is the first in a new series I'm illustrating for Robbie at Pocket Mountains. Titled 'Coast and Country Walks', these books are aimed at walkers of all ages and abilities- well worth a look!

On another note the sun finally came out today and a squirrel came and sunned himself on my kitchen window ledge! Come on Spring!
