When I first started out book blogging some three-and-a-half-years ago I never imagined that I would be reviewing a picture book for adults written by a teddy bear, but hey, here we are. The book is full of wonderful photographs of the ‘author’ and his friends, accompanied by words that really speak to you. These are words of comfort so that you can understand that you are never alone in how you are feeling, whether you feel lost in the world or just need a bit of reassurance. I think the book is very sweet, imaginative and filled with love. When you are feeling down, alone, lost you don’t want to be reading some bulky self-help book to give you a pick-me-up, you need something that is short and to the point and one that can even put a smile on your face. This is that book. This is the first book in a planned series and I can’t wait to see what wisdom and knowledge Mawson has to share in his later books. Whilst the book is aimed at adults, I do feel that some older children could benefit from this book too.

‘It’s a bright world to feel lost in’ by Mawson Bear, the colourful blue cover with a smiling bear encircled with a yellow ring holding a large sunflower, and you just know that this book is going to make you smile. Each page has a bright picture of a bear, with a caption. Beginning with being found and having a new home, to feeling loss and sadness when the person goes off to school or university. The sentiments echo the thoughts each one of us experiences when a loved one is not around for whatever reason. This book made me smile. This book made my heart sing. This is a gentle book which children could read for themselves or parents or carers could read to a non-reading child with their own teddy bear sitting on their lap. However, it is not really a children’s book; grown- ups who are feeling a bit baffled by life and all its anomalies could – and should – read it for themselves. It will make their hearts sing too and they will comfort in the short breezy captions. One of my favourite captions is ‘That squeezy bit in the middle of a hug? That’s Home.’ This book is a reminder that all of us want to be loved and that sometimes, talking to a teddy bear can be the best thing in the world. They don’t judge; they listen to all our secrets; and they’re there for us at the end of the day – what could be better than a furry confidante, who asks for nothing in return. This book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite It's A Bright World To Feel Lost In, by Mawson is a humor/comedy book for children of all ages written by Mawson Bear, who is otherwise known as Mark O’Dwyer. A bear’s world is bright and shiny, and filled with infinite possibility, but sometimes waiting for that special someone to share the world with can be hard. Bears know that their someone is out there and on the way, and they can feel those hugs even before the awaited one is in sight. Bears love unreservedly and don’t seek to change their loved ones. And then they do the hardest thing of all, which is to watch those loved ones grow up and go out to explore their own expanding worlds, leaving their bears behind. But they do come back...usually, and share those adventures. And then, there’s the art of being oneself, of penning the perfect poem to celebrate me instead of us, which certain bears can do so well. And always the chance of being discovered once again. Mawson Bear’s heartwarming and poignant humor/comedy book for children of all ages, It's A Bright World To Feel Lost In, by Mawson, will captivate anyone who’s shared a secret with their teddy bear or felt the comforting warmth of that furry presence in the bed on long dark nights. Mawson’s story is lyrical and compelling, and the illustrations which accompany the text are brilliant. Each image is cunningly composed and photographed to showcase the artist Bear in the best possible light and reveal both his personality and depth of emotion. It's A Bright World To Feel Lost In, by Mawson is most highly recommended.

Mawson Bear brings back fond memories of those childhood days when Teddy was an indispensable source of comfort. There are lots of warm fuzzies to look forward to in this heartwarming story, as Mawson Bear explores how to be the best bear he can for his owner. He worries when his special 'Some One' disappears and looks up the 'McBearies Big Book of Words' to help himself put words to his sorrow. The story is full of lovely lines like "You can hear all those things they don't know how to say" and "That squeezy bit in the middle of a hug? That's home." All kinds of teddy bears feature in the photos throughout the story. A Sweet addition to any Bear Collection.
