Byline: Laura Davis

by Smriti Prasadam-Halls, illustrated by Alison Brown (Bloomsbury; PS6.99 in paperback) MOVE over Bear and Hare, there's a new friendship in town.

Smriti Prasadam-Halls' Bear and Bunny don't need a fancy Christmas tree and an alarm clock to demonstrate their affection - they simply tell each other, over and over and over again.

It's a sweet tale for little ones, told in rhyme, but what makes I Love You Night and Day stand out are the illustrations by Alison Brown, who studied fine art in Liverpool before becoming a graphic designer.

Alison whisks us off on Bear and Bunny's adventures, as they reassure each other that there are no circumstances in which they do not love each other - Bear helping Bunny up a tricky slope, the pair diving down to the bottom of the ocean to see sleeping octopuses, dancing in puddles with a cheeky pair of frogs, and finally tucking themselves in to bed Morecambe and Wise-style to read a storybook.
