When Little Bear wakes up one sunny morning to discover that he has lost his trousers he feels sure that he will find them quickly with the help of his friends. However, although Old Bear, Camel, and the others have all seen Little Bear’s trousers no-one knows where they are now. So Little Bear sets off on a journey to visit all his friends in search of his missing trousers. What has happened to them? Will Little Bear and his trousers be reunited?
Although the story is a simple one there is something special about this charming book that ensures that it is enjoyed and loved by small children. The device of creating a world where toys come to life has been used for many years in children’s literature and it is perhaps this aspect of the story that small children find so engaging. Don’t all little ones love to pretend play with teddy and make him talk and have adventures? Jane Hissey has created a magic make believe world where this happens. There are some funny moments in the book as the toys come up with some very ingenious uses for the missing trousers and all is resolved with a happy ending too. The gorgeous illustrations give a timeless feel to the book and are full of detail that prompts discussion when the book is shared. It is a delightful story to read aloud and one that will probably be asked for again and again!
