Ernest The Brown Bear

Bilberry Woods storybook character Ernest the Brown Bear handmade from wool felt by Laura Mirjami | Mirjami Design.jpg

Ernest is a very contemplative bear, yet not a very talkative one. He seems to be living in his own world most of the time, but once you get him talking it becomes very clear that he holds a world of knowledge and wisdom and that he lives in a realm where the reality and myths blend together and where legends are only history forgotten.

Bilberry Woods Character Ernest The Brown Bear

Ernest is also very knowledgeable about history, not only about Bilberry Woods but about lands far and away and he is often invited to Bilberry Woods school to give a lecture or two.

He is also brave and courteous and he can run incredibly fast once he gets going.

LIKES: folklore, encyclopedias, and well-fitted waistcoats.

DISLIKES: being in hurry and how that one berry seed always gets stuck in the teeth.

MOTTO: Never ignore history as it is what makes us today.
