Martha Alexander says the character of Blackboard Bear was originally inspired by her four-year-old nephew, Christopher J., who had a rich creative ability to entertain himself. "Blackboard Bear emerged one night, onto paper through my pencil, direct from the joy of recalling how Christopher acted out his exciting adventures. Now Christopher has two children of his own." Martha Alexander lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.From Publishers Weekly:
Joining the recent reissue of And My Mean Old Mother Will Be Sorry, Blackboard Bear by Martha Alexander, I Sure Am Glad to See You, Blackboard Bear (1969) shows the boy once again enlisting the services of his ursine friend when the world seems to be ganging up on him.
