With funny word play and bold imagery, actor Ben Bailey Smith and artist Sav Akyuz introduce a trickster to remember.

If there's trouble, one thing is certain: Bear was there. In (and out) of his outrageous purple outfit, Bear can do anything - steal honey from the bees, do magic tricks, steal doughnuts from a police officer, and annoy a certain pesky squirrel. This hilarious picture book debut of actor Ben Bailey Smith (aka rapper Doc Brown) and artist Sav Akyuz will keep young mischief-makers in stitches.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I Am Bear, a visual, verbal treat packed with big, bold illustrations, comes from first-time book creators Bailey Smith and talented storyboard artist Sav Akyuz, and is set to tickle the funny bones and capture the hearts and imaginations of budding young rappers everywhere. * Lancashire Evening Post *
This wildly funny Bear will have you in stitches with his purple fur suit and talent for finding trouble. [...] Great for reading aloud with punchy bold illustrations that really add to the jokes. A sure fire hit with little rebels and wannabe rappers alike. * South Wales Evening Post *
Delivered as it is with a superb verbal economy, this riotous rapping rhyme of a picture book is perfect for beginning readers as well as for reading aloud. Storyboard artist Sav Akyuz's rendering of Bear and the other characters is suitably upbeat and perfectly in-keeping with the playful text and almost gives the impression the visuals have been created with spray cans or daubed with house painting brushes. Published under the Walker Entertainment imprint, there's assuredly plenty to entertain herein but equally there are a whole lot of inbuilt literacy lessons too. * Red Reading Hub *
it's a rhyming, rap-style picture book which is just as bold in subject matter as it is in appearance. Cartoonishly and colourfully illustrated by Sav Akyuz, it's the perfect picture book to introduce your child to the magic of books and reading. [...] Undoubtedly it will become one of those few books that your child will love reciting off by heart and relish reading aloud at bedtime with you. * Junior *
Meet the cheeky rebel hero of the forest in I Am Bear, a charming rap-style, read aloud picture book. * Aldershot News and Mail *
