Sandy is a bear who lives with an artist just around the corner from Alice’s Bear Shop. The artist’s paintings always make people smile and Sandy wishes she could make someone smile too. And so begins Sandy’s very messy but colourful adventure...
Written and beautifully illustrated by Rikey Austin, the storybooks invite children of all ages into the wonderful world of Alice’s Bear Shop (and hospital for poorly bears) where the characters invariably end up either to be repaired or returned to their owners.
The re-opening of Alice’s Bear Shop in October 2018 will see six titles released. Five of these six books are new versions of the original stories, where Rikey has re-illustrated Alice and the characters. And excitingly, there is one completely new story called Little Lost Bear, where we are introduced to this adorable bear, his friends and his new family.
More storybooks are planned for release in early 2019 and these will include original stories (with new illustrations) as well as a series of completely new stories. Rikey is busy creating these new stories and, as with all the books to date, there is sure to be adventure, drama and of course, a happy ending!
