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 brings back fond memories of those childhood days when teddy bears were 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.
