Mother and Father Koala are suspicious of the "other bears." They don't like the panda bears' looks and they don't trust the polar bears. The black bears are too noisy and the brown bears have big teeth . . . . But all their grumpiness melts away as they watch the littlest bears play together and realize that their similarities and common needs far outweigh their differences. The Other Bears is an eloquent tale about tolerance and acceptance that will appeal to readers of any age.
Michael Thompson was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia where he now lives with his own family. Michael has drawn pictures for as long as he can remember and still has his first Teddy bear! He is an M.D. specializing in geriatric medicine. The Other Bears was completed in his spare time.
