Where’s Basil? – Meeting up with his more famous cousin Paddington Bear

Basil met up for a friendly chat with his more famous cousin, Paddington Bear, at Harrison’s Coffee in Spring Street, Paddington, London. 12th January 2022.

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out is a story about a bear in a zoo that puts on a disguise so that he can escape and visit a funfair called Dizzyland. It’s about looking at people in depth and not being afraid because they look different from you. So Basil looks like a man when disguised but is still the same friendly and hero bear in this case once his disguise slips.

The story contains illustrations throughout the text. These are then repeated at the back of the printed book so that younger children can colour them in. One of them can be seen below.

The book is available globally from Amazon in both printed and ebook formats. This is the .co.uk link, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Adventures/dp/1980868859/, and this is for .com, https://www.amazon.com/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Out-ebook/dp/B086DSF5N7/.

Brown Bear’s Big Day Out – a bear visits a funfair

My story about a bear who dons a disguise to escape is available from Amazon globally as a printed book with illustrations that can be coloured in and as an ebook, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Adventures/dp/1980868859/, https://www.amazon.com/Brown-Bears-Big-Day-Out-ebook/dp/B086DSF5N7/.

This is the synopsis of the story:

Basil the brown bear has a dream; he wants to go Dizzyland, an amusement park that he has read about in the newspaper. Getting there will be difficult as getting out of the zoo will not be the easiest of things to do. What he needs is a disguise so that people do not recognise him as a bear but as a person.

An idea springs to mind one day when a hat is blown into his cage. All he needs are some other items and what comes along next is just what he needs. It is the facemask of a famous person. The only problem is that he has to cut the nose of the mask off; otherwise it will not fit over his big nose. All set, one day he borrows his keeper’s coat and makes his way out into the world beyond the zoo.

It is a strange place, made even more so by the fact that most of the people do not seem to understand his English which he has practised speaking for many years. And the fact that people keep recognising him as someone famous, but keep thinking that the nose is wrong. Some of them find his paws hairy but this does not stop him from searching for the magical Dizzyland.

Book Reviewing – At A Very Young Age

Tristan, aged 7, has his own Facebook page set up and on it he reviews a variety of books. One of them was my Clever Dad and the Space Rocket. He and his brother enjoyed colouring in the illustrations and when he gets time he will review my other stories. Please like his Facebook page as he is a wonderful example of  children should be at that age. Get the children reading more and watching less.
