This chapter focuses on Growly’s village, Haven. We didn’t really have an idea of what Haven would be like when we started, but while Phil was writing this chapter, he could just imagine himself walking through the village. As he noticed little details (in his imagination), he realized they told him a lot about the bears of Haven, particularly their love of art and value of family. This helped to set the tone for the rest of the series.
For those of you who love to color, check out page 11 in The Begin Companion (get yours free below) where you can decorate a door like the bears of Haven do. We’d love to see your creations, so send us a photo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post to social media and use hashtag #thegrowlybooks.
