Two stories, Ursula Bear and Ursula Dancing, (originally published in the Hamish Hamilton Gazelle series) about a small bear-mad girl who discovers in a book of magic spells (in the library!) 'How a little girl can turn into a bear'. The results provide some pleasant fantasy which keeps one foot always firmly on the ground. The stories start strongly; complication and satisfying conclusion follow swiftly. Useful for inexperienced readers, especially if they are girls or like bears.
