This is my favourite of Nick Bland's 'Bear' books. My 4 year old enjoys the funny and charming story of the bear who is persuaded to try the instruments in the jungle rock band. He inadvertently becomes the band's star lead singer. Lovely illustrations.

A fun book. Children love naughty and difficult characaters

As this was a gift for a child, I have not had any feedback as yet. Her parents are very busy with a new baby.

                I love reading this to my children and then acting out the book. It's lots of fun and my boys have a great and "VERY NOISY " time.

                      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.
