Rupert Bear is one of the most beloved and enduring characters in children’s literature. The little bear has had many illustrators over the past hundred years, but Alfred Bestall is widely recognised as the best.

This beautiful collection of stories has been exclusively reissued for the 100th anniversary. The collection contains eight of Alfred Bestall’s most celebrated Rupert stories, including Rupert and Raggety and Rupert and Jack Frost. It also includes several lavish endpapers, a selection of unpublished sketches, an introduction by Bestall’s goddaughter and an illustrator’s note by Stuart Trotter, the current Rupert Bear illustrator.

Rupert’s world is truly timeless and this beautiful collection will delight readers of all generations.
