About This Book
Join a Daring Family on a Hilarious Adventure!
Join a brave family as they head off in search of bears in this classic depiction of the beloved children's rhyme. They cross a field of tall grass, wade through a deep river, and much more — right up to the entrance of a gloomy cave, always saying that they're not scared. Of course, when the bear returns, they run back, exactly the way they came, as fast as they can.
The traditional text has been infused with delightful wordplay and plenty of humor, and the pictures by Helen Oxenbury, one of the most widely loved children's book artists, are full of delightful comedy and high drama, set in lovely sweeping landscapes. This is a book not to be missed, one to be chanted aloud and acted out, to be enjoyed over and over again.
