He has now achieved a subtle and expressive form, equally able to move and entertain us. He has, says Nicolette Jones, ‘elevated the standing of the art of strip illustration and added status to children’s books’. Briggs's wife Jean, who had schizophrenia, died from leukaemia in 1973, two years after his parents' death. They did not have any children.

He created characters that are now icons for generations of children, including Fungus the Bogeyman, Father Christmas and, of course, the beloved Snowman. His original Mother Goose was published in 1966 and won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. His work has won numerous awards and been adapted for film on several occasions including Ethel and Ernest. He died in August 2022, aged 88.

A used book that does show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper. Very good items should not have writing or highlighting.Raymond Briggs is one of my favorite picture book creators. He is probably best known for "The Snowman" which was made into an animation where the artwork stayed true to Briggs' recognisable style. I find his books appealing to children of all ages and to adults. They are all written with a sensitivity to the world children inhabit and this is very true of "The Bear".
