The Shopkeeper’s Bear

Shopskeeper

Gorgeous cover!!

Written by Janie DeVos, Illustrated by Rebecca Evans © Little Giggles Press, 2012. When a far-sighted shopkeeper encounters a bear in his store that has come in search of honey, he mistakes her for a woman “wrapped up in a fur” and hires her on the spot as his new assistant. Business increases as curious customers come to see the odd new clerk who has the store running smoothly again. But once the shopkeeper puts on his new glasses and realizes that his new assistant is a bear, will her smart running of the place be enough to keep her employed there? Perhaps not. But maybe something far more important will.

Hope to see you at the event!

About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
