Oscar needs a friend ISBN: 9780590543316
Published by Scholastic, 1998
Little Oscar bear is very lonely. He loves playing, but there are no other bears on his side of the mountain to play with. When Ollie moves in, Oscar is delighted. But Oscar is too rough and demanding. They must play his games his way, and Ollie goes home to mum. Oscar is very cross, but his mother explains what he must do, and when Oscar politely asks Ollie what he would like to play, the friendship gets off to a better start. Lovely, cuddly little bears cavorting on their mountain top make smashing illustrations.
