About the Book

Matilda Bear wakes early on the morning of her sixth birthday and gazes out of the window. She misses Father Bear more than ever and remembers the wonderful times she used to spend with him, wishing she could share today with him too. But she feels as if her father is with her still, which confuses the little bear, as she knows that he is now living with the angels. Embarking on a magical adventure through the forest with her best friend, Lucy Rabbit, Matilda seeks to understand why Father Bear feels so close to her.
Joined by their two friends, Digger the mole and Nutty the squirrel, their search leads them to a world of enchantment. Along the way, Matilda learns the true meaning of friendship, the importance of following her heart, and discovers that magic is all around us, as long as we trust and believe. And she learns that our loved ones never really leave us …
Matilda Bear and Father Bear is a story for children and adults alike, which explores the spiritual journey that occurs when a loved one passes over, blending the myths and traditions of the Druid and Native American people.
