Corebooks

A perfectly modulated story and picture exploration of Little Bear’s fear of the dark and Big Bear’s frustration when Little Bear keeps disturbing him. Lanterns are useless because there’s still dark ‘out there’. So, out of the cave they go into the night itself where moon and stars light up the landscape and Little Bear falls asleep in Big Bear’s arms. Soothing and beautiful.
