It’s close to hibernation, but the bear cave has become far too noisy and overcrowded for Bernard, so off he plods to find a new place to sleep for the winter months.

Surely that’s not going to be too difficult?

But finding the right bed is much more challenging than he’d first anticipated.

In his picture book debut, both written and illustrated by Clive McFarland, we are introduced to this loveable bear on a mission to find a bed and not just any bed, the perfect bed.

With minimal text on each page, even the youngest of audiences will not fail to be engaged in this delightfully heart warming story.


So will Bernard ever find the right spot?

Perhaps it was right under his nose all along.

And if our review isn’t enough for you, why don’t you take a look at the trailer here.
