For brave hunters and bear-lovers, the classic chant-aloud by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury available for the first time for the very youngest of readers in a take-anywhere clip-on buggy book.
We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. Will you come too? For a quarter of a century, readers have been swishy-swashying and splash-sploshing through this award-winning favourite. Follow and join in the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!
“In toddler-tough board, complete with Velcro strap and buggy clip, this is a must-have for the very youngest of readers.” – The Bookseller
