“The Bear Went Over The Mountain” by John Tams and Andy Mayers, explores and encourages the gentle but threatened art of freestyle storytelling.

Our ambition:

To arrest, as technology intervenes, the evident decline of storytelling out loud and shared.

We hope the first telling leads to many more when the story will doubtless change, particularly when the roles are exchanged. The listener/page-turner becoming the teller and the original teller, the listener.

No two stories, once freed from the page and spoken, remain the same. They grow. The wordbook is just a version. Do with it what you may?

John & Andy
