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.


Love this one


My 2 year old loves all the Cranky Bear books, this is a beautiful one with a very nice message



Truly memorable


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



Love the Bear series


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.

These books are brilliant


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

Great story that children will love


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!
