Orse, the playful polar bear who constantly gets into trouble. This is his second series of adventures for boys and girls alike. He is full of great ideas and marvellous inventions but somehow things always seem to go wrong.
Richard Allen created the character of Orse and his friends Frederick the Rat and Eddie the Albatross first as an animation and finally put them into print with book 1 last year and book 2 this year.
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 artwork. (Korky Paul – illustrator)
