Baffled Bear Books

Welcome. Here is a restful place on the web for you. We are all about books, bears, friends, love and niceness. Here, you can slow down and relax for a while- or even for longer. Go on, reach for the chocolate and flop down on your cushions.

Here you can relax for a while in a web den about books, bears and niceness.

Where it’s all right to be muddled and confused. Do you sometimes feel ruffled and befuddled about, well, Things, all sorts of Things? You are among friends here. At Baffled Bear Books we are utterly baffled about nearly everything most of the time. And that’s all right.

Mawson makes picture books suitable for grownups. Enjoy some lighthearted nostalgia.

Mawson is our Ponderer-in-Chief. He enjoys pondering deeply about Baffling Thing. Most things are so baffling that he then falls into a refreshing nap. He may not see his way clear to any Answers to Big Questions. But he does feel confident that in the end, after all the words are said and all the naps are slept, things will be All Right.
Mawson felt that his ponders might help fellow Baffled Ones. Could this be you? He plonks his ponders down into small books that Grownups can find restful and easy to read.

Books by Mawson, who is one of this bright world’s few published writer-bears.

Dreamy Days and Random Naps will delight everyone who enjoys daydreaming and napping – and isn’t that every Baffled One in this whole bright world? It might even be you!
