Rupert Bear: A Celebration of Favourite Stories (Hardcover)
About the Author
Alfred Bestall was born in Burma in 1892, and for much of his life he lived in Surbiton, Surrey. He served in the First World War and on returning became an illustrator for books and magazines. In 1935 he began writing and illustrating 'Rupert' stories for the Daily Express, which he did for 30 years, creating in the process perhaps the best-loved incarnation of the famous bear.
