Mawson is one of this bright world‘s few published Writer-Bears. He speaks, as softly as you can imagine, about being one’s best in an often baffling world.
A modest bear of generous proportions, distinctive in his white fur coat and bow tie, he sits atop his cushion and ponders about baffling things. Friends approach him about their own dilemmas. They seek instant answers that will make everything all right. Mawson does his best. But after he ponders deeply, most things remain for him just as baffling as they were before. For the many frazzled readers who perhaps feel, secretly, much the same, he offers the comfort that nonetheless the world is a bright place to be.
