About Not So Scary Bear:
Every day Scary Bear roams the forest looking for animals to scare. Every night he roared so loudly even the leaves on the trees shake. But looks can be deceiving. What is Scary Bear’s secret? Could it be that he would prefer to be knitting or star-gazing?
Not So Scary Bear is a tale of friendship, deception and being yourself, scary or not. The illustrations are all handmade using collage and a mighty lot of mess!
Ruth Waters studies Art History at university as well as courses in Children’s Illustration in the UK and Canada. Not So Scary Bear is her first self-penned picture book. The collage illustrations are all handmade using acrylic, glue and mess. Ruth is based in Sydney with her husband and two children.
