Meet the bears in Dreamy Days and Random Naps: Samantha

Hello Fellow Baffled Ones, my name is Samantha. I was found sitting on a shelf in a shop called Good Samaratins. Here in The Land of Oz* people call this shop ‘Good Sammys’. Perhaps landing in a shop all by myself was rather a shock because I hardly remember anything before that.

One day, I was whooshed up and carried away and washed and brushed and then plonked alongside Mawson who said, ‘Hello Samantha. Welcome home.’ And I have had a home ever since.

Here’s me with my friend Dino who is a terribly fierce dinosaur or sometimes a dragon. My favourite things are my Dino, my bag, my hat, my treasure box, the colour purple, and my friends.

You can see my friends in the books Mawson has made. One is called It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In and the next one is She Ran Away From Love.

You can see me daydreaming away in Dreamy Days and Random Naps . Read more about it here. I’m also going to be in two more books. Mawson says we’ll tell you all about those later.

Mawson’s Guardian says: Thank you, Samantha. Mawson’s Guardian says: Thank you, Professor Caddy and Professor Bree. And now a word about where to see more of our wise and clever professors. Dreamy Days and Random Naps is at Amazon everywhere, including Amazon India and UK, and at Amazon Australia (where the Samantha lives).

If you would like to not use Amazon, its also at BookDepository, at Barnes and Noble, at Dymocks, at Booktopia, and soon to be at more.


You have wandered into Mawson Bear’s web-den. Mawson is a Ponderer of Baffling Things (between naps) and the Writer-Bear of It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In  and She Ran Away From Love.

‘This little story made me well up. A lovely, poignant story with delightful illustrations.’ Jackie Law, Amazon Top 500 reviewer, about It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost in.
