In this delightful children’s story, Peter Eyvindson tells of the small struggles that loom large in young minds.

Who can protect you from the boogey men in the closet and the snakes under your bed? For Kyle, it’s the one and only Chester Bear. But when Kyle cannot find his stuffed companion one bedtime, Kyle must face the night alone. Where is Chester Bear? Will Toby Bear be a good substitute? Kyle looks everywhere and solicits the help of mom, dad and his two brothers. With inspiration drawn from his own three sons, Eyvindson, captures perfectly what it’s like to be the little brother who has lost his “good-for-nothing, stupid old stuffed bear.”

In this delightful children’s story, Peter Eyvindson once again shows that he is a keen observer and storyteller as he tells of the small struggles that loom large in young minds. Peter and his family live in Clavet, Saskatchewan.

Illustrator Wendy Wolsak-Frith uses pen and ink drawings with colored pencil to bring the characters truly to life. Her wonderfully animated figures add action and energy to the story. She is from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Chester Bear, Where Are You? will strike a chord with anyone who has had a special stuffed friend, and makes a perfect bedtime story.
