Mawson’s Guardian says: Greetings to so many new followers. Welcome to Mawson Bear’s Blob. Here you will see wholesome things of interest to bears, teddies, plushies, artists, writers, and all who love them. (Writers and artists need love too. All Stuffies know this.)
Mawson’s little picture books are entirely suitable for all cubs, fuzzy and otherwise, 109 years old and under. Are you a weary Grownup? Then, they are especially suitable for YOU. In Mawson’s whimsical world you can forget about being sophisticated and busy and solving things, slow down and relax. You might even nap.
Mawson ponders about the Important Things: Sitting comfortably on cushions, napping, dreaming big, dreaming small, feeling lost, feeling found, trying to feel bold and brave even when you really feel little, exploring all the way to the lounge room.
His books are available on-line to all paws that are able to get hold of a keyboard. Why not buy them for your People when they aren’t looking. They’ll be so glad you did. They are called: Its A Bright World To Feel Lost In (more about that one below), She Ran Away From Love, and Dreamy Days and Random Naps. The next one will be called Isles. Or Islands, Or Islanders. Or Like Islands- its all a bit of a muddle just now. More news in a while
It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In, by Mawson, is a whimsical gift book for grownups who feel just a little weary about, well, Things and Stuff. Its also suitable for cubs because it is full of pictures of handsome bears. It features teddy bears because they 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.
