The Bear is Back!
I adore Nick Bland's books, his rhyme and illustrations are a winning combination, and it is no wonder he is the successful author/illustrator that he is. So when his new book, The Very Noisy Bear arrived on my doorstep, you bet I did a happy dance.
With the opening line, 'In the Jingle Jangle Jungle' Nick Bland and his furry friends are back for another fun-filled instalment.
Bear is woken from his slumber, and we all know how cranky he can be. Taking his complaint to his old friend sheep results in an unexpected invitation. 'Have you ever tried the jungle drums?' enquires sheep.
Moose, Zebra, Lion and Sheep introduce a variety of instruments from drums, guitar and trumpet. When Bears takes to the microphone and ROARS as only a bear can the jungle creatures erupted in song and dance.
But finding the perfect instrument is wreaking havoc on his furry friends ears, and Bear quickly becomes a Very Noisy Bear!
As the jungle falls fast asleep under the still of night Bear is still looking for just the perfect instrument, and you'll never guess which one he chooses.
Get ready for another engaging rhyming visual extravaganza from the talented, Nick Bland.
