The Very Cranky Bear is back, and now he's hungry!

When the Very Hungry Bear goes fishing, he ends up catching more than he bargained for - a polar bear, with an armful of fish, who needs help finding a new home!

Vibrant illustrations and a fun, engaging story make this book perfect for reading aloud.

This is the third book about the delightful and endearing 'Very Cranky Bear'.

The Very Cranky Bear was first published in 2008 and has become an international best-seller.

About the Author

Nick was born on a farm in Victoria 's 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.

He now lives in tropical Darwin where he has started works full time as an author illustrator. On weekends he works as a guardian for 120 aboriginal boys from around Northern Australia who are boarding in Darwin . He loves both of his jobs and hopes to combine them in the near future.

              I've been reading Nick Bland books to my son since he was about 3 months old. He thoroughly enjoys listening to the flow of the story. My son can't keep his hands off it.

                The story does not flow very well, I liked the other two in the series very much.
