    Comments about The Very Cranky Collection:

    A fantastic collection of books that I read to my 4yr old on a nightly basis. We enjoy most of the collection - although the Brave Bear isn't a favourite and the itchy bear (and flea) lacks in a detailed storyline but the cranky bear and hungry bear are firm favourites, even I enjoy reading "in the Jingle Jangle Jungle".

          This was a gift for my granddaughter's birthday. She loves the Cranky books but didn't have a set of her own so she was very happy.

            Nick Bland

            Nick Bland was born on a farm in the Australian Yarra Valley in 1973. The son of an artist and a primary school teacher, he spent his early childhood climbing haystacks and making mischief in his father's studio. When he moved to “the bush” at age 6, he discovered a wonderful new world and his creativity bloomed. Nick always told family and friends he was going to be a cartoonist and a writer. It wasn't until 1996, when he stumbled into a bookshop job, that he finally found the medium that would bring those two loves together. Untrained, he spent the next couple of years reading every picture book that hit the shelves and began honing his style as a storyteller and illustrator. He illustrated several readers before sending A Monster Wrote Me a Letter to Scholastic Australia in 2001. Since then, Nick illustrated I Lost My Kisses and created The Very Cranky Bear. He lives in tropical Darwin, where he works as a guardian for 120 aboriginal boys who board nearby. He loves both of his jobs and hopes to combine them in the near future.
