Summary

Summary

A favorite classic returns--with fabulous full-color art! Anthony is tired of being bullied. So Blackboard Bear is a good friend to have when the other children don't want to play fair. He knows how to teach them a lesson and how to make Anthony feel much, much better. First published more than thirty years ago, the popular Blackboard Bear books were instantly celebrated for their spare, consummate portrayal of universal childhood experiences. Now Martha Alexander has created charmingly detailed full-color illustrations from her original three-color artwork--readying this delightful classic about friendship for a whole new generation of young fans.


Author Notes

Martha Alexander was born in 1920 in Georgia. She attended the Cincinnati Academy of Art, and lived in many places, including New York, Alaska, and Washington state, before settling in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Alexander was an artist since childhood, trying her hand at ceramics, doll making, fabric and clothing design, portrait painting, children's murals and paintings, decorative collages and mosaics, and teaching art to adults and children. She said after attending the Cincinnati Academy of Art, that she did not find her niche in the art world until, at the age of forty-five, she was given her first children's book to illustrate. She knew then that her long search for the right medium of expression had been more than justified. Alexander was an author and an illustrator of children's books that dealt mostly with what it's like to grow up.

Martha Alexander wrote and illustrated the Blackboard Bear books and has written and illustrated a host of books for children. She died in 2006.
