Three Bears – Three Chairs!

Illustration:  The Three Bears’ Picture Book.  Illustrated by Walter Crane.  George Routledge and Sons: London & New York.

“Who’s broken my small chair?”

They turned to draw their chairs a little nearer;

“Who’s sat in my chair?” growled the Father Bear;

“Who’s sat in my chair?” said the Mother, clearer;

And squeaked the little Cub, “Who’s broken my small chair?”

  1. I love the clarity of the illustration. And, the fierceness of the bears, even Baby Bear. And they are quite an affluent family – A nice Arts and Crafts look to the place! I like the upholstery on Father Bear’schair.

    1. The story begins by describing the bears as prosperous – they live in a good size house too, but this is not the only Three Bears where they live large. Their chairs are interesting – very personalized to each bear. I am madly in love with illustration – it is a masterpiece as all his work is.

    1. The floor is wonderful – he is the master – always takes special pains with the floor/ground. I joined two facing pages of the book in Photoshop – something I had never done before – makes a big illustration!
