I love this – The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland

by |October 22, 2010

When four friends encounter a cranky bear, Moose, Lion and Zebra all think they know how to cheer him up. But it is plain, boring Sheep who has the answer.

In the Jingle Jangle Jungle on a wet and windy day, four little friends found a cosy place to play. Moose had marvellous antlers, and Lion, a golden mane. Zebra had fantastic stripes and Sheep . . . well, Sheep was plain.

When four friends encounter a cranky bear, Moose, Lion and Zebra all think they know how to cheer him up. But it is plain, boring Sheep who has the answer.

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

The exciting sequel, The Very Itchy Bear, was published in August 2010.

Bear is here . . . and here is Flea (but Flea’s a little small to see).

This is Flea about to bite, but not because he’s impolite. He’s biting bear to say, ‘Hello!’, biting high and biting low.

In The Very Cranky Bear, Bear’s cave was invaded by four playful animals. In The Very Itchy Bear there is just one creature bothering him: a persistent flea.

Bear tries to get away, but Flea just won’t leave him alone. When Bear finally gets rid of Flea, he finds that he misses him-and a new friendship is born.

Another instant classic from Nick Bland!
