About the Author
Robert Edward Joseph Perron was born in Milton, Massachusetts, but he has spent most of his life in Connecticut.
Encouraged by his adopted daughter, Lori Ann, to exercise a latent talent, Mr. Perron, himself and his sister adopted, was inspired to pen 'The Adventures of Bum and Carey Bear,' based on his families two well-worn and much loved and hugged stuffed polar bears, 'Bum and Carey.'
Mr. Perron thought deeply of 'Bum' and 'Carey' and, interweaving his own experiences, began to write a children's book about two polar bear cubs and their grand adventures.
The story tells of how two troubled and lonely souls are destined to be friends and brothers forever.
Drawing upon his collection of stone critters, the story contains no less than fifty characters. The author brings each one to life.
Our young heroes invite the young--and the young at heart--to go along and share with them the joy of family, the wonder of nature and the spirit of Christmas.
Mr. Perron, who lives with his lovely wife Irene, is a retired teacher of piano and composer. His varied interests include literature, astronomy, science and antique autos.
