Book Description

In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a cold and rainy day, four little friends found a perfect place to play. Vibrant illustrations and fun, engaging stories make these three books perfect for reading aloud. The original hardback 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.

      I have been using this book as a teaching resource with young children . It is engaging and has undertones that can be easily be developeed for example environmental concerns . There are three books in the series and the children wanted me to read all three.

        Comments about The Very Cranky Bear Collection:

        Great collection of books, the text and pictures keep my toddler interested and the books are just the perfect length. By having the three books in a pack, when the "Bear Book" is requested yet again, at bed time I can change things up. I like the rhyming and flow of the story. In The Very Cranky Bear my toddler, loves to roar and say "no, no, no ,no ,no" at the appropriate places.
