Présentation de l'éditeur

One night a great big, white polar comes to stay with Tilly. The bear's got black hooked claws and huge yellow teeth; but his white furry coat is warm and soft and Tilly decides he's the cuddliest thing in the whole world. Tilly soon finds out that a big bear can cause big problems - he takes a LOT of looking after! But when she describes the bear's latest antics to her parents they think he's a figment of her imagination - but is he? --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Biographie de l'auteur

Raymond Briggs was born in Wimbledon Park, South London in 1934. Developing an early interest in illustration, he attended the Wimbledon School of Art at the age of fifteen. After completing a typography course at the Central School of Art, he went on to study at the Slade School of Fine Art.

A passionate proponent of the art of the strip cartoon, Briggs has created many of his best-known books in this format. His is a formidable canon of work, beginning in the late 1950s. Several of his books have been made into highly acclaimed animated films.

In addition to the Kate Greenaway Medal (for the Mother Goose Treasury and Father Christmas), Briggs has also received the Kurt Maschler Award and the Children's Book of the Year Award (for The Man), the British Book Award's Best Illustrated Book of the Year (for Ethel and Ernest) and the Smarties Silver Prize (for Ug).

He lives in Sussex.

Magical wonderful stuff. 11 avril 2001
Par Sailoil - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Briggs has a knack for illustration that is simply awe inspiring. The bear in this book is just so big. Kids love to see such a big bear get into the house. He makes a mess of the bed and the bathroom, he dirties the floor which has to be cleaned up (good introduction to pets for children) and all the while the adults keep missing him. They just cannot manage to catch a glimpse of this huge bear wandering around their house.
This is a magical and imaginative book which my kids love. It takes a bit of reading at first, but once you get the gist of the story it is easy to lead the children from picture to picture, and it is very well illustrated. It reads almost like a TV programme.
Highly recommended by me. Suits from 2 year olds up to six or seven.

"It's a Lovely Smell...All Dark and Smoky..." 25 mars 2006
Par R. M. Fisher - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Every child should have a Raymond Briggs book on their bookshelf. Perhaps best known for his wonderful picture book "The Snowman", which is a fantastic book for children, especially ones that cannot yet read (considering it is made up entirely of pictures) "The Bear" is a natural follow-on, once again featuring a young child's interactions with a creature of snowy lands that may or may not be real.

With misty, dreamy illustrations that range from small comic-book panels to full-page spreads, Briggs creates the warm domesticity of a typical family household and the mysterious alien presence of a massive polar bear that enters through young red-haired Tilly's bedroom window. Far from being afraid, or even particularly surprised, Tilly welcomes him into her home.

Typically enough her parents treat the entire proceedings as an imaginary game that their child is inventing (although they treat it with heart-warming indulgence rather than simply ignoring their daughter's claims), and it is sure to raise smiles that the two of them keep missing the massive presence of a bear in their midst. Briggs' skill as an illustrator shines as the bear hides behind doors, under beds, or simply out of the adults' line of vision within the reasonably small interior of Tilly's house. One particularly striking picture portrays Tilly and her father watching television, oblivious to the bear looming over them from behind.

Children have a special bond with animals, able to connect with them on a level that some adults no longer have; and like a favourite toy, they often think of them and treat them as human beings. Out of all the animal kingdom, the polar bear has a special mystery to it and so is an apt choice for the huge, ghostly presence that fills the pages of this book. Briggs' bear is certainly a strange presence, both in the reasons for its arrival at Tilly's house and its final destination - in between is the typical domestic messiness that comes from keeping a polar bear in the house. Though it is predominately an animal character, behaving as one would expect (including leaving several smelly surprises for Tilly that she cleans up in disgust), there are often the barest traces of interest, intelligence and smiles in its expression.

"The Bear" is designed for slightly older readers considering the among of dialogue throughout, and though it is not Briggs best book, (but only because his other works such as "The Snowman", "Fungus the Bogeyman", and "Father Christmas" and are so beloved), this is a memorable, mysterious reading experience.

Big book, but a fun one! 20 juin 2013
Par Kurt A. Johnson - Publié sur
Wow, big book (14.5"x10.5"!), but a fun one! In it, award-winning author and illustrator Raymond Redvers Briggs tells the story of a great big bear that comes to live in Tilly's house. Tilly tries to make it feel welcome, but taking care of a polar bear is a lot of work indeed!

Yeah, this is a funny, off-beat book. Is the bear real or just a figment of her imagination? My little reader was convinced that it was real, and it sounded like a lot of fun to her! It is interestingly illustrated, in a colored-pencil form that helps add to the dream-like quality of the story. Yeah, my little one and I both liked the book, and we think that you and your little one will like it as well.

Who hasn't dreamed of cuddling with a huge furry bear? This story can be read on many levels, humorous and somewhat disturbing. It speaks to the inner child. Wonderful, dreamy illustrations. Is this out of print? Someone please bring it back! Raymond Briggs is a genius!
