Will our special bear find not just the perfect home and the perfect owner, but also a job which makes him as useful as the other bears?

From the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize comes a warm and witty look at the life of one special teddy bear. Travel with him as he comes from his factory to his first home, from the charity shop to a new home. But what can he do best when there are other bears who make themselves very useful indeed?

Praise for Nightbear

“The illustrations are a jolly treat. Full of messy pictures of the little girl doing all sorts of dire and wonderful things with her teddies, they epitomise how children play with their best-loved toys. Everyone should have a Nightbear!”

Books for Keeps

“A delightful and heart-warming story about a very special teddy bear who finds a very special job.”

Parents in Touch

“The sparkly cover and bright coloured illustrations are charming and will delight all, as readers empathise with the toy's feelings of rejection and realisation of being individually unique. A heart-warming message for everyone.”
