Norton and the Bear by Gabriel Evans – Our Review
Shortlisted Book for the 2021 CBCA Awards
Read aloud again and again…Norton and the Bear is a simply delightful.
We meet the highly loveable Bear who
just wants to be like Norton, a very snappy dresser. This irritates Norton no end, until he finds something to admire in Bear.
Visually stunning, Norton and the Bear has lots of highly relevant issues for little ones such as finding friendship and acceptance in unusual circumstances and realising that each one of us is unique on the inside.
Australian author Gabriel Evans works from a small, messy studio near a
river. His hobbies include drinking tea, growing trees and searching for the perfect artist’s beret. Beautiful!
