Robbie’s Inspiration – Guest post by Frank Prem and a review

It’s my pleasure to invite visitors to my blog to pop over to Robbie cheadle’s place – Robbie’s Inspiration.

Today I’ve chatted with her and her vistors a little about The Bakery Bears, and why they engage me so much that I’ve written two books about them, now, with Waiting For Frank-Bear just about to be released.

Robbie has also posted her review of the new book and it is just lovely to read.

The Bears will be delighted when I mention it to them!

Robbie has also featured another collage of Bakery Bear photographs with the article.

Thank you, Robbie.
