Old Bear by Jane Hissey5 stars for illustrations, 3 stars for story.
Jane Hisseys illustrations are absolutely marvelous! So warm and cuddly and realistic; the old bear looks so sweet, worn and real, I felt like I could reach out and touch his soft fur. I really loved this for the illustrations. The story itself is a bit too long-winded and I didnt really sense anything special in the voice; I imagine if Hissey was trying to get into picture books today they would have paired her with another author or else pared down her text quite a bit. Still, its a nice story of friendship and the value of old things but the real merit here is the illustrations. Ill be on the look out for more of Hisseys work.
