Description

Celebrate 25 years of Big Bear, Little Bear and their cosy cave in this gorgeous anniversary edition of a classic bedtime favourite.

Described as 'the most perfect children's book ever written', this is a beautiful 25th anniversary edition of the Kate Greenaway-winning story of Little Bear, who just can't sleep. There is dark all around him in the Bear Cave. Not even Big Bear's biggest lantern can light up the darkness of the night outside. Can Big Bear find a way to reassure restless Little Bear and help him fall fast asleep?
