This is Mary's sister Emily Bear
Mary said she wanted a sister to talk to and play with, so Emily was born. Emily lives with me and goes everywhere I go. She looks after the creatures at Celestine and the Hare, being a kind helpful bear who loves to read and she stars in our series of books. Here is her film about making her own library.
You can see their sibling below. Mary and Emily love their sisters and like to keep track of where they are what they are doing, so we list them here on the website.
This is Mary Bear
Mary Bear started off as a painting in a book by my friend Jackie Morris called Something about a Bear. Jackie is an author and illustrator and artist and a good friend. Anyway, she gave me a most beautiful present so I asked her if I could make her a Mary Bear in return. She said yes please and Mary was born.
She also has been in the Guardian online showing how to join the libary. She is a very helpful bear. Mary lives with Little P who is a panda and also has featured in the guardian and Leopard and all the bears in the wild wide world.
Jackie Morris' art work can also be found on facebook at The House of Golden Dreams
