Rupert Bear

My son's sketch of Rupert Bear. Rupert Bear is a long time favourite of many British children. He has yellow checkered trousers, with a red top. Rob's grandma bought him this when he was newly born and Rupert was taken to bed every night until he was a least ten.

Rupert started out as a strip story in I think the Daily Express Newspaper and has been popular for almost ninety years. Each year a Rupert Bear Annual is published. Rob has about ten. I loved these annuals as a child. Lots of pictures with story captions underneath.

So now Rob's Rupert Bear is immortalized in a drawing.
