When Mr Fry Came To Tea

Mr Bear and Mouse had much excitement in The Corner Of The Forest as Mr Stephen Fry came to visit for a cup of tea to chat about Mr Bear's favourite time of year - Christmas. Mr Bear and Mouse got out their very best red tea cups and, although it was a tough choice whether to offer Mr Fry a tea or a sherry, the time of day suggested tea might be best. 

After hearing all of Mr Bear's favourite things about Christmas, and the tale of their festive adventure, Mr Fry so very kindly agreed to tell the story of Mr Bear's Christmas for us all to enjoy. Mouse could barely contain her excitement at the thought. 

For now, you can watch the animation with Lorna reading the narration here until Mr Fry's beautifully narrated version is available to watch. More details to follow soon. 

If you'd like a copy of The Tales Of Mr Bear to enjoy this Christmas, they're available just here

With love & excitement, Lorna x

Hi Lorna,
Congratulations, that is really fantastic news! I thought you did a really great job in narrating Mr Bear’s Christmas. Though I can imagine that you are ‘pleased as punch’ to have Mr Stephen Fry do it, I can imagine his voice narrating. Well done and thanks for sharing your exciting news.4
Happy Friday, and have a good weekend.
