Poor Mouse! A bear has settled in his favourite chair and it just isn’t big enough for two. Mouse tries all kinds of tactics to move the pesky Bear but nothing works and poor Mouse gives up. Once Mouse has eventually gone, Bear gets up and walks home. But wait – is that a Mouse in Bear’s house?!

The recipient of the inaugural Amnesty CILIP Honour, There’s a Bear on My Chair is a JOYOUSLY illustrated picture book, with a clever single rhyme echoing Dr Seuss – it’s perfect for sharing.

Ross now has over a hundred titles to his name including Busy Night, which won the White Raven Award, Alvie Eats Soup which gained an Oppenhiem Award, Billy Monster’s Daymare which won the Royal Mail Book Award and Dear Vampa which won the Scottish Children’s Book Award. Ross’ book The Elephantom was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and has now been staged at London’s Royal National Theatre by the creative team behind ‘WarHorse’.

In his private time Ross enjoys precariously swinging backwards on chairs.
