Published on: 07 September 2017 Author: Robbie Hunt

Mary Plain is an orphan who lives with her relatives in the bear pits at Berne Zoo, Switzerland. A delightful but rather unusual bear, with a huge personality and an appetite to match, you never quite know what escapades she'll get up to next!

Clara Vulliamy has been chosen to illustrate the new editions of the Mary Plain books (Egmont), classics from the 1930s-1950s. Check out some samples below:
