Hello Fellow Baffled Ones. My name is Scotland the Brave. I was the first bear to arrive in Mawson’s house after Mawson. My job was to sit in the microwave oven and get warm and then get close to people and make them feel comfortable. Mawson was amazed I went into the oven.
‘You are so brave’, he said. ‘And I wear trews’, I said proudly. Mawson said everyone in Scotland is brave and it’s where trews come from. So I became Scotland The Brave. After Mawson assured me that people in Scotland don’t sit in microwave ovens, I stopped. Nowadays, am brave in all kinds of other ways. I also deliver the post.
Here’s me with my favourite things. My postie hat and post box and my trusty truck.
You can see me being brave in When A Brave Bear Fights Cancer: A Get Well Soon Gift, by Carola Schmidt. It is illustrated by Mark O’Dwyer who is my Guardian. I’m on nearly all the pages. Sometimes I am worried and sometimes I am scared and always I am trying very hard to be brave.
More details soon.
You can also see me in all the books by my grand friend, Mawson. One is called It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In (in that one I deliver the post) and the Mawson’s next book is She Ran Away From Love (I deliver the post again.)
In Dreamy Days and Random Naps you can see me imagining more ways to be brave (between naps). 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, Scottie. And now a word about where to see more of our bravest bear and occasional postie. Dreamy Days and Random Naps is at Amazon everywhere, at BookDepository, at Barnes and Noble, at Dymocks, at Booktopia, and soon to be at more.

The book brings back such nostalagic memories that it made it comforting, like a old security blanket.’ FNM Book reviews about Bright World.
