Just after Pooh (and long before Paddington) there appeared a remarkable bear in British children's literature. Mary Plain is, in her own words, "an unusual first-class bear," with pointed ears and a cute little snout and an outsized sense of adventure and fun (with an appetite to match). Mary gets up to all sorts of things with her relatives in the famous bear pits at Berne Zoo and with her human friends the Owl Man and the Fancy Coat Lady, in these newly illustrated editions for readers and listeners up to 9.
Join Mary in her second book as she tries all sorts of new things that young bears rarely experience, including eclairs, cream buns, going on buses, airplanes, boats, taxis and even winning first prize at a show, all in the company of her long-suffering friend the Owl Man.
