Bug and Bear

'A charming, gentle story about friendship and how true friends will do something they don't want to do, for the sake of friendship.' - parentsintouch

'Muted colours ... busy pages and interesting layouts, turn this story about the value of true friends into a picturebook that is likely to become a bedtime favourite.' - Bridget Carrington, Armadillo Magazine

"Marlow's illustrations have a soft focus ... their gentle humor nicely enhances and advances Bonwill's deftly written tale. Apt for the very young." - Kirkus, March 2011
