Alongside some beautiful felt figures of the titular characters made by his partner Louise, Jonny spent the morning captivating the children by doing live drawings of the charming Bear and Bird, which he then signed for his little fans to take home! He also gave out Bear and Bird activity sheets for the children to colour in, and signed copies of the book for customers to purchase.
