About Mawson and friends

Mawson’s Guardian Speaks: Writer-Bears have to have guardians because it isn’t easy getting their furry selves recognised these days. Also, hitting four keys at a time with one’s big paws can create a terrible muddle.

Baffled Bear Books ABN 47887910119: This means, after humanely removing the numbers, Me, Mark, Guardian of Mawson Bear. I live close to the fridge where Mawson looks (between naps) for Honey-Choco-Milo-Creams.

The fridge is in Perth, Western Australia, where the warm weather is not what you’d expect a polar-kind-of-bear to have to bear. Could this fact be connected to the lolling, flopping and snoozing that goes on all over the house? (And that’s just by me.)

Mawson has the glamorous job of Pondering about Baffling Things.
Then he and his friends (“the Baffled Bunch”) have the fun of posing for their pictures. The pictures show what Mawson’s Ponders would look like if you could see a Ponder.

Mawson leaves the trickier typing to me, his Guardian, while he takes care of the trickier napping.
