We're going on a bear hunt.

We’re going to catch a big one.

What a beautiful day!

We’re not scared.

Why go on a walk, when you can go on a bear hunt?

For brave hunters and bear-lovers, the classic chant-aloud story now in a large board book edition – for when you’re hunting for an extra-large bear, of course!

We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one. Will you come too?

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!

For a quarter of a century, readers have been swishy-swashying and splash-sploshing through this award-winning favourite. Michael Rosen’s timeless classic, lovingly illustrated by Helen Oxenbury is, in fact, nearing its thirtieth anniversary having first appeared in print in 1989 since when it has become an essential feature on any child’s first bookcase.

Shhhhh…. Don’t wake the bear!

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize

“A firm favourite”

Bought this for our first grandson when he was about 12m. He loved this being read to him during his childhood - with all the actions of course! Great story demonstrating no problem is unsurmountable
