Book 1 in the Postal-Bear Series
Dropped in the park by his owner, he has lost his memory and his way home! Jumble is now travelling the world by post, and with the help of the Gnomes, trying to get back to a little girl he barely remembers.
I opened my eyes, blinked a couple of times and looked up at an old, lined face and into a pair of pale, grey and smiling eyes.
I never actually learned the old lady’s name, but she gently whispered to me to lie still whilst she checked to see if I was hurt.
She explained that she had found me an hour ago in the park, that I had probably been dropped by a little girl or boy and that she had brought me home because the nights were so cold.
Later that evening, I was washed in the kitchen sink with an old toothbrush (I didn’t like that), and fed hot soup and crusty bread at the large wooden table (that was much better). The soup tasted a little strange, but I was so hungry that I did not care. I drank it all up in no time at all and looked around for some more.
Easy enough to be read aloud to younger listeners and challenging enough for older hands to hold, Jumble and the Turtle King is the second adventure in the ‘Postal-Bear’ series.
Each chapter is just the right length for a great night-time storytelling experience for both the listener and the reader and, with seven chapters in each story, your bedtime reading needs are met for a full week.
I am a little lost bear. I have lost my owner, my friends, my home and my memory. I do have some cloudy memories of a little girl but I cannot see her face when I close my eyes. I cannot remember anything else about my life apart from that.
I think my name is Jumble. That was the name given to me by the old lady who found me.
I am trying to find my way back home using the postal service as a way to travel around the world.
