‘These are really wondrous books. Everyone loves bears, and everyone will love
these delightful stories about the polar bear Orse, illustrated with such lyricism, wit
and skill. A pleasure to see such well drawn and observed art work.’
Korky Paul, Illustrator.
‘A great read for both adults (to their children/grandchildren) and for young children (I
would suggest 6-8 years old). Orse and his friends are very likeable characters and the
book includes a range of vocabulary and sentence structure so it is ideal for children to
read, to help develop their own stories. Looking forward to reading more of Orse's
‘I bought this book specifically to read to my 7-year-old grandson. We both found Orse to
be an adorable, funny and loveable polar bear. We are really looking forward to the next
book when it becomes available. A brilliant read for all children. Highly recommended.’
‘A Fantastic book, very funny with beautiful illustrations.’
‘My son thought that Runnynose Hill was hilarious.’
‘My little girl took Orse to bed with her so she could cuddle him.’
‘Pleasantly surprised to find a book that entertained myself as well as my children. Great
characters beautifully drawn. Will defiantly be interested in future Orse adventures.’
