What makes a teddy bear irresistible? Is it a round belly, stocky body, slightly shaggy "fur," or a wide-eyed and innocent look? Valerie Tyler explains the secrets of giving a bear character, from size and proportion to positioning the nose, mouth, eyes, and ears. Celebrate your hobby with the bears: a fisherman and his son, a ballerina, gardener, hiker, and a musician. Mark a special occasion with Christmas bears or a bride and bridegroom. Score points with a swimmer, cricketer, tennis player, and golfer. Or pay tribute to the professional world with a teacher, a farmer, a doctor, a policeman, or a chef. As soon as your first bear begins to take shape, it will seem to come to life! 192 pages (106 in color), 103 b/w illus., 8 1/4 x 10 7/8.
