A Whimsical Gift Book for Frazzled Grownups

It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In, by Mawson, is a whimsical gift book for grownups feeling just a little weary about, well, Things and Stuff.

It features teddy bears because these creatures all too often meet the fate of being lost. They can then only wait and hope to be found again.

“(This book) could be shared with children and their own bears to help them feel safe and loved. But it is more a book for adults. Substitute the word bear for person and you have a book that provides solace in loss, friendship in loneliness”. Linda’s Book Bag, Reviews. 

Mawson, a bear veteran of being left all alone, guides less experienced friends through the bewildering world. Before them looms the large question that baffles not only lost bears: can you go on being you when you don’t know who to be you for?

Mawson struggles to find the right words to tell about feelings.
The words he ends up with are few, sometimes muddled, but always as true as he can make them.

“Like the aroma of freshly baked bread or the sound of your child laughing, Mawson’s simple (but never simplistic) book hits its mark in a way that you will intuitively understand but will not be able to put into words.”   Dan Djurdevic, author of the remarkable Mirror Image of Sound.

I am Mark, Guardian of Mawson Bear. Mawson sits on Bed-Top Hill. Between naps he ponders about Baffling Things. After deep ponders, most things remain for him as completly baffling as they were before. But they do seem friendlier, somehow. If you, too, are baffled by, well, Things, his little books of ponders could be just right for you.
