Description

'When I was a small boy I had a little, silent bear called Sunday ...' So begins a story in which a boy and his bear are so inseparable - in the way that children and bears often become. When the little boy goes to the swings, the bear goes too and sits in the swing next to him. When he goes to the toilet, the little bear sits next to him on a tiny potty. They are the best of friends. But the little bear never says anything. And he never gives the boy a kiss. Doubts cross the boy's mind: does the little bear love the boy as much as he loves him? Is the bear really alive? He tries to get some sign of life out of the bear. And then one night the boy has a dream ...A beautifully poetic story about the magical world of children and bears.show more
