Willa and the Bear, Hardback Book


More than anything, Willa adores her ragdoll, Rosie, made by her grandmother just for her.

Together, through the seasons, Willa and Rosie picnic, pick berries and jump in piles of leaves.

But one winter's day, on a snowy, bumpy sleigh ride to Grandma's birthday dinner, Rosie falls out of the wagon and no one notices until it's too late.

Willa is inconsolable - and not even a new gift (a handmade teddy bear) from Grandma helps.

Unbeknownst to the family, a black bear finds Rosie and keeps her safe and sound.

The bear delivers Rosie to Grandma and Grandpa's cottage, but Willa is the only one who sees him.

On the journey home, Willa spots a familiar shadow in the distance and finds a way to thank the special friend who returned her doll.

With its charming folk-style illustrations, this beautiful picture book will warm the heart of every child who has ever had a favourite, beloved toy.
