Product description

For brave hunters and bear-lovers, this is the classic chant-aloud by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury in a beautiful 25th-anniversary edition. 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! This title is the winner of the 1989 Smarties Book Prize and was highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal. This anniversary edition is embellished with gold foil, gold bear logos and a special gold sticker.

By Johnathan Price 11 Oct 2014 5

This is a wonderful engaging story. My daughter loves it and we often recreate the story in the house together, with blanket and a family of teddies. Simple but hypnotic text and wonderful images.
