Meet Mary Plain – the wonderfully funny and utterly endearing bear.


Mary is an orphan who lives with her relative at Berne Zoo in Switzerland.


A truly lovely bear, Mary can also be described as rather unique.



We first met Mary back in 1930 when originally written by Gwynedd Rae, but she’s had a revamp and is back for more adventure.


The original series included 14 books, telling tales of the bear with a huge personality and even bigger appetite.


Reproduced by the critically acclaimed illustrator of the Mango and Bambang series, Clara Vulliamy, Mary is back in Mostly Mary and All Mary.
