Belinda and the Bears and the Porridge Project

By Kaye Umansky
Illustrated by Chris Jevons

  • Paperback
  • £4.99

Brand new Early Reader by Kaye Umansky, author of the bestselling Pongwiffy the Witch books, about The Three Bears (yes, the same ones) and a clever little girl called Belinda.

Belinda lives in Honeybear Lane with her mum and dad. The house next door is empty ... until, one day, The Three Bears move in. Their house in the woods has been knocked down to make way for a motorway, and now they need Belinda's help to cope with the outside world. After all, bears can't live on porridge alone.

Kaye Umansky's new series for Early Readers is just as warm and delightful as her Algy's Amazing Adventures books. Every page is illustrated in full colour by Chris Jevons.
