The Very Cranky Bear is back, and this time he's facing Boris Buffalo in a battle of bravery!

But will something surprising send them both fleeing through the forest? Vibrant illustrations and a fun, engaging story make the book perfect for reading aloud.

This is the fourth book about the delightful and endearing Very Cranky Bear. The Very Cranky Bear was first published in 2008 and has become an international bestseller.

About the Author

Nick Bland was born in the Yarra Valley of Australia, in 1973. He was the son of an artist and a primary school teacher, and spent his early years on the farm where his parents lived. At age six, he moved with his family to 'the bush'. He wanted to be a cartoonist and a writer from a very young age. In 1996, he took a job at a book store, and decided to write and illustrate children's books. His first book, A Monster Wrote Me a Letter was published in Australia in 2005. He currently lives in Darwin, Australia and works full time as an author illustrator.

      Comments about The Very Brave Bear:

      This book is truly adored by my young child, so much so that he memorised it at 2 and 1/2 years of age! Good pattern, great illustrations, engaging story and characters. Highly recommended for 2 - 5 year olds

        Comments about The Very Brave Bear:

        We love the Bear series in our house - especially our 3 year old. Perhaps not quite as good as the original Cranky Bear, but still well written, fun, engaging and beautifully illustrated. Our 7 year old also likes reading these books.

          I can't say how much I love this series of books.
          I think I enjoy reading them more than my little one.

            Another great 'bear' story from Nick Bland. I love the reference in the story to the cave where the 'Very Cranky Bear lives' to find out the cranky bear is not in there :)
            My daughter loves all the bear books.She loves to sing the story as the rhyme is so catchy!
