Bear wonders what kind of bear he is, and sets off to find out...

When Nelly asks Bear what kind of bear he is, he isn't entirely sure how to answer. So off he goes to find out . . . But none of the different bears he meets on his travels are like him. Grizzly bears don't have funny stitches; polar bears don't have washing labels attached to their bottoms; spectacled bears are simply not as soft and bouncy as him; and sunbears never wear smart bow-ties. So, disheartened, he returns to Nelly . . . only to discover EXACTLY what kind of bear he is after all - her own special bear!

Author bio:

Greg Gormley used to stuff cushions for a living. Then he learnt how to purify gold. Finally, he decided to do something more sensible. So he studied fine art. Greg has written and illustrated several picture books and was featured in the Oprah Winfrey Kids' Reading List. He lives in Cambridge with Ana, Pepa and Sid the dog and spends his time arguing with academics about robots.

David is more commonly known as Dave. However, he'll always be David to his Mum and to his partner Jo when he's been particularly naughty. After many jobs in many different fields, he made the life-changing decision to do an MA in Children's Book Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art. David graduated in 2015, winning the Sebastian Walker Award for most promising student, and is now living the dream making picture books as his proper full-time job! His first book, Have You Seen Elephant?, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. David currently resides in the wilds of Northamptonshire with Jo, his son Teddy and their over-affectionate cat Sofia.
