About Sarah Cooper

Sarah and her bears

I live in Hertfordshire with my family and a lot of teddy bears. I’m a teacher and love being surrounded by little people in the classroom and at home – playing, cooking, reading, doing art and crafts, or going to the cinema, park, fair, zoo …

When I was a child, my mum was a gymnastics and trampolining coach so I have written a story about something I know … and added a bear and plenty of magic to make it all the more fun. I also wrote a story for my English teacher when I was eleven about an amazing trampoline, so I have built on that idea too. And my nickname is Sare-Bear - so my story had to have a bear in it. They are my most favourite animals and as you can see from the photo, I have a lot of teddy bears! Can you spot Buddie?!
