Waterstones Says

A classic picture book detailing a family's outdoors adventure in pursuit of a bear, Rosen and Oxenbury's beloved favourite makes playful use of repetition, rhythm and sound for an unbeatable read-along experience.

Winner of the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize

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

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!

A former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen is one of the most familiar and distinctive writers (and voices) in children’s literature having written and collaborated on more than 150 books of stories, jokes and poetry for all ages, including Mustard, Custard, Grumble Belly and Gravy, Michael Rosen’s Book of Nonsense, Little Rabbit Foo Foo and more recently Jelly Boots, Smelly Boots. He’s also a familiar figure in broadcasting, regularly presenting R4 programmes including Word of Mouth and a passionate advocate of reading in schools.

Helen Oxenbury’s inimitable illustrations have introduced many children to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as well as picture books including We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, Farmer Duck and  Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes.

Nice book with great illustrations but my toddler found it a bit dull, not one of her favorites.
