-- 'Cuddle Muddle' is a funny, sunny tale of a Wee Bear who wants a cuddle. It is a story that resonates with youngsters who all know what it is like to feel sad and need a reassuring hug.
Alan Dapré is an experienced author and illustrator and he brings each page to life with engaging words and colourful pictures. This is his first eBook in the Wee Panda Bear Series. Wiggle Jiggle is the much anticipated follow-up.
Alan is a parent of a lively four year old and he appreciates that children need to read and share quality fiction. The idea for the Series came from his own wee daughter who has her own wee bear. The adventures are always written to spark children's imaginations and to give parents a chance to talk about the narratives and images.
Alan draws using a tablet and his images combine traditional line drawings with computer gradients. This gives his work a contemporary feel but also a reassuring familiarity. His characters look bold and simple, with engaging personalities that draw children into the plot and story.
If you like funny, quality picture books then Alan hopes this is the book for you - and feel free to enjoy it for free over the next two days.
