The Bears in the Bed and the Great Big Storm

Author: Paul Bright
Illustrator: Jane Chapman

I wrote this story when the people at Little Tiger Press said there was a chance to work with Jane Chapman, who does wonderful animal illustrations. I tried various stories about bears – bears up a tree, bears eating honey, and gradually decided on bears in a storm. The younger bears are scared of the storm and think they can hear monsters outside. They all crawl into bed with Bear, who reassures them that ‘There’s no such thing as monsters!’. But when there’s a knock at the door, Bear isn’t so sure.

This book is also available with a CD featuring narration by Justin Fletcher (CBeebie’s Mr Tumble) and Sophie Thompson.

Quiet!

Author: Paul Bright
Illustrator: Guy Parker-Rees

Quiet! was the second picture book I had published. Baby Leo lion is fast asleep and Pa Lion says he will eat any creature that makes a noise and wakes Leo up. I tried writing lots of other stories about being asleep or being woken up before finally writing this one. That happens with a lot of my stories – I write lots of not-very-good versions before getting one that I’m happy with. When somebody does finally make a loud, loud noise, will Leo wake up? And who is it making the noise?

Quiet! was shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award in 2004 – it didn’t win, but I did get a Blue Peter badge!

Quiet is also available with a CD, narrated by Jamie Theakston and Doon Mackichan.
