Norton was horrified.
He walked quickly away from the bear.
People would think they were identical.
He needed to look different – fast!

Is imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Or is it just annoying? Follow Norton as he attempts to avoid a bear who begins to copy his appearance. A hilarious read-aloud picture book about individuality.

I had a lot of fun making Norton and the Bear, and it’s partially inspired by my own childhood where teasing your sibling through copying was part of everyday life. The illustrations were created in watercolour, gouache and pencil. It’s my first book with award winning indie publisher, Berbay.
