We’re going on a bear hunt! Through the long wavy grass, the thick oozy mud and the swirling, whirling snowstorm – will we find a bear today? Children will love joining in with the animated version of this adventurous tale from the acclaimed King Rollo Films – accompanied by specially composed music and narrated by Emilia Fox and Kevin Whatley – and following all the action in the classic picture book, which won the Smarties Book Prize and was Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
This Big Book edition of Helen Michael Rosen’s classic adventure is perfect for sharing with large groups.
This worthy winner of the Smarties prize in 1989 is a timeless classic that is enjoyed by children of all ages as well as by the adults who are continually asked to read it again and again. Follow the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of the bear. What a surprise awaits us all in the cave on the other side of the dark forest. Michael Rosen’s lyrical, repetitive text reads aloud beautifully and Helen Oxenbury’s delightful watercolour illustrations not only provide the perfect complement but also add another dimension to the story itself. (Ages 3 and over)
The regular size edition of this book is also available.
