Waiting for Goliath

By Antje Damm
Illustrated by Antje Damm, Sally-Ann Spencer

A warm and surprising story about waiting for a friend

Bear has been waiting since dawn. “I’m waiting for Goliath,” he tells everyone. “Goliath is coming! He’s my best friend ...He’ll definitely show up. You’ll see!” Bear waits patiently for his friend. The robins fly to the south and the first snow falls. When Bear awakes from a long sleep, he hears a noise like a hand sliding slowly across paper. Goliath is coming! But his identity is a big surprise.

  • A story with depth, humour and warmth
  • Antje Damm creates a diorama from cardboard and photographs the scenes, giving the illustrations a special luminosity and depth
  • Starred reviews from Kirkus and Publishers Weekly
