Stumble trip! Stumble trip! Stumble trip!’ Join this intrepid family on their adventure through a deep cold river, thick oozy mud and a big dark forest: on a mission to catch a bear! There are many different obstacles to face through the course of the journey, and the pace of Rosen’s writing combines beautifully with the book’s well-loved illustrations to create an experience so vivid that we can almost feel the wind whistling through our hair, and the damp seeping into our socks as we splash, tiptoe and squelch our way from page to page. Perfect for sharing, there is lots of repetition in this story to delight little ones, and the real challenges faced by our bold characters are bound to spark excited discussion amongst older readers. One not to be missed!
