It’s a happy day when the new issue of Frankie magazine is available. My idea of heaven is having some blissful moments with a cup of coffee and Frankie.
So what a thrill it is for Katie and I to have our blog featured on the Frankie blog today.
We knew Frankie loved the work of UK illustrator and author Robert Hunter, so we sent them some copies of his book Bearly Warm to giveaway. That’s right GIVEAWAY! Head to the Frankie blog for all the details on how to win this unique handcrafted book.
Bearly Warm is the improbable yet absolutely endearing story of an extremely large polar bear who just can’t get warm. When he decides to borrow some clothes from a long washing line in a nearby village, not only does he find that the clothes bearly fit, but that the villagers are bearly happy… What can the villagers do to help a bearly warm bear?
Cleverly playing on the word ‘bearly’ the restrained text relays a poignant story of giving. A snowy landscape and quirky buildings and figures set the backdrop for illustrations of a beautifully expressive bear.
This limited and numbered edition, self-published by UK artist Robert Frank Hunter is a gorgeous book which will more than bearly warm your heart.
