The Water Vole family have moved into the bottom of the garden. Bertram, the youngest of the family, doesn’t like swimming like other water voles, but he does love to sew. Despite his family and friends encouraging him to swim, he busies himself with sewing and repairing his family’s clothes.

A gentle story about being true to yourself and following your passions. Includes ecological notes and instructions for making your own teddy bear.

Reviews:

“How I would have adored this book and all your work when I was little kid. It’s like a cross between the flower fairies books and tales of the river bank. Not only charming and heartwarming but full of the compelling fascination of the tiny; minute tea cups and a world where blackberries are as big as your head. I only wish these had been
around when I was 6.” Nicola Davies, children's author

"It’s so gentle, kind, deep, profound in such a light and accessible way. [...] I especially love the bit about learning how to ask questions…made me smile. I think lots of littl’uns will find comfort knowing that you don’t have to like what everyone else is doing. I want to shrink and live in Bertram’s world.’ Gill Lewis, children's author

"Totally charming, thoughtful story" Julia Green, children's author

"Gentle-but-firm story about determinedly being yourself. So beautiful you'll want to climb into the pages, and has a craft activity and natural history, too. Great classroom book!" Mimi Thebo, author

"It is the photos of the exquisitely handmade Bertram on his journey that brings him to life and children will fall in love with him.' Zoe James-Williams, South Wales Evening Post

Praise for the Celestine and the Hare series:

“Karin Celestine’s wonderful, life-affirming books encourage us all to keep in touch with and to nurture the playfulness, exploration and hope of childhood. These are books that make the world a better place.” Zoe Toft, Playing by the Book
