Ruby wants to tell you a story. A story with absolutely no bears. You don’t need bears for a book. You need pretty things like fairies and princesses and castles. And maybe funny things and exciting things – but definitely no bears!

However, despite Ruby’s determination to banish all bears from her story, one clever bear still manages to wheedle himself into the book, hiding around the edges of the illustrations and eventually taking on a starring role!

This hilarious picture book skilfully appropriates fairytale conventions, containing a range of allusions to well-known fairytale characters, events and settings. The illustrations gradually construct a parrallel narrative, playfully reminding the reader to question the “truths” they receive as there is always more than one way of looking at a story.
