This is the best sort of story that surprises you every time, even though you know what is going to happen. The bear is the most faithful of friends and a very good waiter.

Waiting for Goliath


A warm and surprising story about waiting for a friend.


  • Product Description

    Bear has been sitting and waiting since dawn.
    “I’m waiting for Goliath,” he tells everyone.
    “Goliath is coming! He’s my best friend.”
    At last, the bus pulls up. But no one gets out.
    But Bear is sure: “He’ll definitely show up. You’ll see!”

    Bear waits patiently for his friend. The robins fly to the south and the first snow falls. When Bear awakes from a long sleep, he hears a noise like a hand sliding slowly across paper. Goliath is coming! But Goliath’s identity is a big surprise.

      Pleasingly original, imbued with the colourful variety of the seasons, and with a cosy story to melt the hardest of hearts, this is a book of warm surprises and strong friendships.

      Goodness me, what an unexpected delight! I think Triangle may have some competition for my favourite kiddo book of the year, Waiting for Goliath is irresistible!
