 My Review
One Night in Beartown is an adorable children's book that has a magical feel to it. 
It's about a little girl named Sandy who loves bears. She even lives in a town known as Beartown, and there's a statue of a bear outside her house. 
One day, at school, a little boy makes fun of her for having a teddy bear with her in class, and her teacher confiscates it overnight. Sandy is upset that she has to spend one night without her beloved bear. But then, something magical happens. The bear statue outside her house comes to life. 
What follows is a fun little adventure with the bears of Beartown.
I found this story to be super cute. The illustrations were lovely, and I know young readers will enjoy the easy flow of the overall story.
I'm giving this one 5 stars!

Author Bio –

I’m Nick Jones, an award-winning author originally from Bristol but now living in Congleton, Cheshire. I write books for kids and I’ve also written several joke books for adults. My first book, Gagged and Bound – A Book of Puns, One-liners and Dad Jokes, was a best-seller under Puns and Wordplay on Amazon UK, and two sequels soon followed. You can download a FREE collection of my jokes here.

In December 2017, I tried something different: a children’s picture book about a girl who loses her shadow. Illustrated by the super-talented Si Clark, Sarah’s Shadow has proved popular with kids and parents alike. In 2018 it won Best Children’s Picture Book in the 2018 Book Awards on international book review site Readers’ Favorite. My claim to fame is that the same award was previously won by none other than Jim Carrey, the Hollywood actor-cum-children’s author! Sarah’s Shadow also won Runner-Up in the Book Excellence Awards and received a Purple Dragonfly Book Award as one of the best picture ebooks for children aged 6+.

In 2020 I ran a Kickstarter campaign during lockdown to fund my next book, One Night in Beartown. It was inspired by the Bearmania event that took place in 2011. Thanks to amazing support from businesses and individuals in Congleton and beyond, I raised £4,000 to illustrate and print the book. It was published on 1 December and you can buy it on my online shop, on my publisher’s website or as an ebook on Amazon.
