But all he discovers are spots too windy, too wet, and too wild for him until he realizes that the perfect bed for a bear was right in front of him all along.

Molvie's Children is a novel written entirely in rhyme. It begins with Molvie going to collect Andrew from a family that has been looking after him since he was a baby. Andrew discovers that he is part of a special' group who have been cared for by humans. Now, as they stand on the threshold of adulthood, they are taken to the Scottish highlands to be trained in a variety of disciplines, and find their individual special powers. Earth is a planet with multiple planes, and life forms exist other than those that we already know. Even in our own plane, other life exists which is mostly unknown to mankind. They are descendants of an ancient race, whose purpose is to preserve human life. They cannot readily be distinguished from other humans, but posses special powers, such as acute hearing and sight, contortionism, mind reading, invisibility, and the ability to travel so fast that all others appear motionless. Molvie is one of these beings. He has suffered in the past - all his children were killed by monsters from another plane. With the somewhat staid Molvie as their mentor, and the more flamboyant McBryce as a trainer, the scene is set for many escapades and adventures. But, before the teenagers have been fully trained, Molvie is seized during an attack, and taken through a portal. This is the biggest challenge to face them, but are the teenagers ready, not only to assist in the defence of the Earth, but to enter another plane on a hazardous rescue mission? Molvie's Children tells the story of four teenagers cast adrift from a life they had previously conceived to be normal. There are many adventures and discoveries to be made, but the most important thing is that each of the teenagers discovers themselves.
Flora loves her Bear dearly, but her mum says it's time for him to go in the wash. Beautifully imagined scenes show Bear, in the wash, remembering how much fun they had getting grubby in the first place. When Bear is clean, he's just not the same, so Flora sets out to have some fun and get him back to his dirty but loveable self again. Then, at the end of a long day, it's Flora's turn to have a wash - and good old Bear still loves clean Flora just the same. AUTHOR: Thomas Docherty found reading and writing really difficult as a child, so he ended up keeping a sketchbook diary, especially if he travelled somewhere new. That was the inspiration for his first picture books 'To the Beach' and 'Little Boat'.
