The Bestest Ever Bear Launch Party


The Bestest Ever Bear poetry book was officially launched at the Polka Theatre, Wimbledon by the much-loved bear, Sooty, along with Richard Cadell and children’s poet, illustrator and contributor Colin West, on the 25th October 2010.

The Bestest Ever Bear is a delightful anthology of 30 bear poems to celebrate Walker Books' 30th anniversary and to help raise money for The Children’s Trust. The collection includes poems from A.A. Milne, Spike Milligan, Edward Lear, Roger McGough, Stanley Cook, Colin West and many more well-known poets.

The Children’s Trust is a national charity which provides care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs, and offers rehabilitation services to children with an acquired brain injury.


Contributing poets Colin West and Hiawyn Oram with Sooty and Richard Cadell.
