New Picture Book About a Wooden Bear Who Tries to Find His Home is Released


From the imagination of author Rosemary Parker comes a vibrantly illustrated picture book for the young readers everywhere. "Homer's Big Adventure" will enthrall, entertain and educate children with the tale of a wooden bear who comes to life and embarks on a journey to return home.

Parker tickles the young and the young at heart pink with her story, which follows the eponymous character, a wooden bear placed in front of a gazebo, mounted on a wheeled plant stand to keep his base up off the ground - and to help move him around. One particular night, when the wind was roaring rather fiercely, he is blown far from his home and into dark, unfamiliar grounds. Readers will see if he will be able to find his way back, or if he will be lost forever.

With easy-to-follow lines on top of vividly illustrated pages, children will be able to follow Homer in this exciting book that highlights courage, determination, and the value of friendship.
