We’re delighted to announce that One Night in Beartown, the Kickstarter-funded children’s picture book by Nick Jones and Si Clark, is now available to buy. You can order the digital ebook on Amazon or you can purchase the paperback (printed by the wonderful NMC Design+Print) from our website here. If you live in Congleton you can also buy the book from the Tourist Information Centre.
The book has already received numerous positive feedback on book blogs and review sites:
“One Night in Beartown is an awesome read; one of the best kids’ books this year; it’s most highly recommended.” – Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite
“You don’t need to hail from Congleton to buy this lovely book. It’s bear-illiant!” – Jill Murphy, The Bookbag
“One Night In Beartown is a glorious book that deserves to be snapped up by a production company and turned into a Christmas tradition along with those well known animations of books by Raymond Briggs or Julia Donaldson.” Linda Hill
The book is aimed at children aged 4-8 and tells the story of bear-mad schoolgirl Sandy Lane, whose beloved teddy bear Berisford gets confiscated at school one day thanks to school bully Tommy Pickles. She dreads the thought of going a whole night without his cuddles. Little does she know that a bear-rilliant night awaits her, involving Berisford, a bear statue and many other wonderful friends!
Full Media would like to thank every business and individual that supported the Kickstarter fund over the summer. Despite the unprecedented events of this year that have affected all of us in one way or another, Congletonians and indeed book-lovers across the UK and even the US rose the occasion and helped Nick reach his target of £3,500 to fund the printing and illustration costs. Hopefully, everyone will love the resulting product as much as we do.
