Two little bears by Suzi Moore; illustrated by Nicola O’Byrne (2013)

two littleSome picture book collaborations are magical. In Two little bears, the illustrations, words and design, work together seamlessly to create something very beautiful.

We follow the exploits of Little Brown Bear and Little Snow Bear as they explore the world. Their stories parallel each other until the day they meet.IMG_1135

“Here is the place where BOTH bears come,

where the sea meets the river in the light of the sun.

On one side a brown bear – what can he see?

On the other, a snow bear, what can it be?”

The language is lyrical and the illustrations are breath-taking. This is a gentle and lovely picture book.
