The Bear Who Had Nothing to Wear

Albie arrived wearing NOTHING but fur,
he could have been either a Him or Her…
Most teddy bears let their owner decide,
but Albie would not, for a bear has its pride.

But each outfit that Albie purchases - from fairy to pirate, from cowboy to elegant city gent - proves unsuitable in some way, and by the end of the week his bedroom is heaped with discarded clothes. How will he dress in order to feel like himself?

This hilarious story in verse is about the joys of dressing up, and one bear's search for his own identity. A delight to read aloud, accompanied by riotous illustrations, and with a nod to sustainability and the pleasure to be got by sharing.
