About this title


When Mr. Bear decides to move them out of the dirty city, Edith and Little Bear try to clean up the town so they can stay.

About the Author:

Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright’s next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. Edith And Little Bear Lend A Hand is the eighth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1972, it was photographed in Dare’s apartment, on the streets of New York City and on the Hudson River where she captured her bittersweet image of the World Trade Center towers before they’d been completed. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright’s original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her apartment.
